LARGEST TAIWAN SPM TERMINAL INSTALLED
A. R. Schultz Intec Engineering Inc. Houston Chinese Petroleum Corp. (CPC) last year installed and commissioned Taiwan's largest single-point mooring (SPM) terminal. This, the third of four planned SPM terminals, is unloading 100,000-300,000 dwt crude-oil tankers 5 miles offshore Kaohsiung, Taiwan, on the southwest coast of the Republic of China (Fig. 1). Construction on the fourth SPM terminal, for unloading naphtha and diesel gas oil from 20,000-100,000 dwt tankers, began late last year.
