Explain Deep Water Port.
Ans. Deepwater Ports were initially defined as “non-vessel, fixed or floating manmade structures that are used as ports or terminals for the loading, unloading, or handling of oil for transportation to a state. However, presently DWP includes facilities constructed at sea which are used as terminals to transfer natural gas, usually received in the form of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) from LNG carries to Onshore facilities and pipelines. In order to receive LNG, specialized port facilities are required. The term “Deepwater port” includes all associated components and equipments, including pipelines, pumping stations, service platforms, mooring buoys, and similar features or equipment to the extent they are located seaward of the high water mark.
