  • Status: Current

This publication provides methods for estimating evaporative loss from marine vessel transfer operations. Specifically, it addresses:

  • loading stock into ship or ocean barges, or shallow draft barges
  • loading ballast water into ship or ocean barges from which crude oil has been unloaded.

The emission estimates are for uncontrolled loading operations and do not apply to operations using vapor balance or vapor control systems or ballasting of ships with segregated ballast tanks.

This standard supersedes API 2514A, Second Edition, September 1981, which is withdrawn.
