New York State Transportation Fuels Infrastructure Study
The New York State Transportation Fuels Infrastructure Study [PDF] examines the infrastructure and market trends that affect the supply and distribution of transportation fuels into, and within, the State of New York as well as trends affecting fuel specifications and overall demand. The primary fuels include gasoline, diesel, and emerging alternative fuels such as ethanol, compressed natural gas, and biodiesel. The report discusses current and future estimated demand for transportation fuels in the State. Additionally, the report discusses key aspects of the supply chain, ranging from international and domestic refineries, pipelines, blending, storage terminals maritime transport, and rail, to retail operations and distribution.
Petroleum Infrastructure Study - September 2006
This study characterizes the distillate and residual fuel oil infrastructure on Long Island, the New York City metropolitan area, New York Harbor (including relevant facilities located in New Jersey), and the Hudson River corridor as far north as Albany and Rensselaer. The study identifies major sources of fuel supplies and the associated flow paths into New York, inventory patterns, characterizes the status of storage facilities, assesses the capability of the supporting transportation infrastructure, characterizes the competing uses for distillate and residual fuel oil, and identifies contingency measures to mitigate potential fuel shortfalls. The study may be used to support regulatory and policy initiatives by the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) related to interruptible gas customers. It also advances knowledge and understanding of the role of distillate and residual fuel oil in meeting the State's heating and electricity needs, and supports NYSERDA's Energy Emergency responsibility.
