LOOP – Louisiana Offshore Oil Port

The LOOP has been importing about 1.2 mb/d of crude oil y-t-d 2005.

Average discharge is about 60,000 bbls per hour depending on the type of crude (faster for light crudes, slower for heavy crudes) for the average VLCC.

The single day record for discharge is just under 2.0 million barrels in a single day, but this is not a sustainable rate. A more realistic expectation is in the 1.5 mb/d to 1.6 mb/d range
