Strategic Petroleum Reserve

The Strategic Petroleum Reserve:
A Report on the Capability
to Distribute SPR Oil

The report examines the capabilities of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to distribute oil during an emergency and recommends certain changes to ensure the timely and efficient drawdown, distribution, and refining of SPR crude oil. The study assesses the capabilities of four operational areas: SPR facilities, the overland distribution system, the marine distribution system, and the domestic refining industry. These areas are studied under three distinct cases: 1983 actual conditions, a 1990 nondisrupted case, and a 1990 disrupted case.
