terminal and then evaluated possible options to resolve those
The scope envelope covered product movement, tankage requirement,
utilisation and demurrage throughout harbour, berths, products
pipelines, harbour storage terminals, intersite transfer lines, refinery

Stochastic modelling was used to assess the flexibility and
constraint of the existing assets for conversion of the refining
operation to an import terminal.
Evaluation of the required investment, capital expenditures,
financial model of the refining vs. terminal business cases was stress
tested against agreed likely future scenarios.
