Costa Rica: Petroleum Dock is Urgent

A new $88 million terminal would allow Recope, the state-owned oil refinery, to lower crude importing costs.

Monday, August 3, 2009

The current dock allows a hull draft of 9.5 meters, which is too shallow for ships entering at full capacity, so they must bring the cargo half loaded or at three quarters capacity, making it more expensive.

Jorge Blanco, International Commerce manager at the company, told newspaper Nacion.com: "The freightage of a ships costs us $700.000, and it is the same price if we bring it at full cargo or at half capacity ... this problems will be solved with the new, modern petroleum dock in port Moín."
