NY HARBOR UPDATE

We have 4 newly landed Container Ships.

Brooklyn AC...You should be able to see the DUNCAN ISLAND at the Red Hook Container Terminal in Brooklyn. At least one Slip is now open of 9. It is a relatively small ship

I am only going to record newly docked ships from here as there is a lot more movement and it looks like the were working most of the night.

4 New Container ships = 18,156 TEUs at best

Interesting Development with Tankers. I am listening to the Harbor Traffic Radio and what they are trying to do is use Small barges to unload from the Large Tankers.

There seem to be 3 of these smaller barges working at the moment.
Also the SCOTTY SKY is headint to the JFK Docks.

This had been announced like a week ago now. Finally starting.

QUEEN EXPRESS appears to be almost unloaded but only 60,000 barrels.

TRAINS ARE STILL CUT OFF. We are on Day 11 for the trains

RAIL UPDATE

It does seem like the Rails are a greater issue on the Exporting from NY HARBOR than on the Import so it will be interesting to see how that unfolds elsewhere in the Country.

23% of Chinese imports come through NY Harbor.

From the US Energy Information Administration


"Of the stations sampled, 76% (up from 73% yesterday) had gasoline available for sale. None reported they were not selling gasoline because they had no power."

[link to www.eia.gov]

So NYC as a whole is down 24% at the moment. They are giving daily updates as we can see and a great chart.

Thanks to the EIA! You can definitely see the Pain on LI.

They have a checkbox for Post Sandy Damage and it is new Satelite Images. Finally some images of the Docks. Many actually do not seem to be bad, at least from above.

The ones that do look bad are Linden and Perth Amboy, NJ. There is no telling whether the Tanker Docks, which are the really thin curved ones are damaged though. Salt water corroding the hookups, etc.

Thanks for the Philly update. That Paulsboro facility can only store 90,800 barrels so it will be overloaded quick unless they are getting trucks in and out of there.

It seems to be about 1 or 2 Tankers a day docking in Philly. Does that seem right?

For those who were hoping. The election has NOT changed the Train status.

Trains still CUT OFF

[link to www.nscorp.com]

This is now day 11 with no train deliveries or pickups at NY Harbor and the Nor'Easter is now on top of the area Snow is falling in New Jersey

NY HARBOR UPDATE:


7 Container Ships have Docked overnight with 2 Docking at New York COntainer Terminal on Staten Island, which is freshly opened.

Total MAX TEUs overnight: 24,735

Total TEUs AT BEST since reopen: 140,811

That is still short of what the average daily sum would be for the 10 days since the port closed. Also assuming that all ships were full and unloaded all cargo which is not likely. We were short about 140,000 TEUs when the first docks reopened.

No new Oil tankers have Docked at the moment unless they have disappeared from the Map.

There is a good summary for the situation on 2 november for the oil supply in the whole area. The gasoline stocks are down to 5year minimum and are less than 50 MB (miliion barels?) This was enough for 16.5 days starting from 2 november.

Does somebody knows in which way the supply in middle long term will be affected? I read several articles mentioning problems for super Friday and the holiday season.

That is an excellent find. Thank you so much. It does verify what we have been covering here for a week now.

In an earlier post from yesterday I guessed that incoming supply at this point is in theory down about 40% for the area. My personal opinion is that it will be wavy, so some days will be bad and the next day pretty good at the pumps. But there will be a delay becaus of the existing supply. Maybe 1 or 2 week delay and then supply will start to get thin, prices rise, long lines etc.

I don't know how much of an area will be affected either.

Long term it will recover but I think we are looking well through Thanksgiving of abnormal supply, lines and rationing. Especially with this new storm coming in with the potential to knock out power again in many areas including the ports.

I just hope we do not see this with Food as the trains are down still and docks are not fully operational throughout the Port of NY/NJ.

Certainly anyone can give their opinions and observatiosn here.

Shipping losses from Superstorm Sandy at $1B, says consultant

Cargo Business Newswire
Monday, November 5, 2012
Top Story


Superstorm Sandy cost an estimated $1 billion in damages to the Northeast cargo industry, said an industry consultant on Saturday.

"It looks like we're losing close to $80 million a day on that," said Charles Clowdis, managing director for transportation and consulting services at IHS Global Insight. "Through yesterday, we have probably lost close to $1 billion on cargo delays."

Railroads and trucking companies are beginning to service the region again. The container terminals at the Port of New York and New Jersey remained closed through Saturday, with vessels rerouting to other ports.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said on Monday that the Port Elizabeth Terminal had opened with the arrival of vessels at the Maher and APM terminals. The Port Authority also said that the Port Newark Container Terminal and the Global Terminal in Jersey City, NJ, would open for business on Nov. 5 with ship arrivals expected at both facilities by that night...

Jones Act waiver gets fuel to Northeast, gas and heating oil prices drop

Cargo Business Newswire
Monday, November 5, 2012


After the U.S. waived shipping requirements to get much needed fuel into the Northeast, prices for gasoline and heating oil fell.

The Department of Homeland Security waived the Jones Act so that more vessels could carry fuel from the Gulf Coast to the East Coast. The Jones Act normally requires shipping companies calling between U.S. ports to use U.S.- flagged vessels only

Colonial Pipeline Co. said its main line that delivers to New Jersey and terminals around New York Harbor resumed deliveries on Saturday.

"The supply situation is going to improve quite a bit," said Andy Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates LLC in Houston. "Some of the terminals in Linden have full power. Buckeye restored to full power last night."

Atlas Supplies Critical Fuel To Superstorm Sandy Relief


Day 7 of our Superstorm Sandy support. We now have 56 trucks deployed and more than 70 people assisting! Fuel is in high demand.


As of Saturday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m., Atlas Oil has deployed 34 fuel trucks, over 200,000 gallons of fuel and more than 30 drivers and support personnel to the Superstorm Sandy relief effort as fuel continues to be in critically short supply on the east coast. The team has set up a local command center camp in Pinebrook, New Jersey. Trucks and fuel are being dispatched to the hardest hit areas of the storm, including New York (including Manhattan and the Bronx areas) and New Jersey.

The company is on stand- by to provide additional resources as needed to aid the FEMA restoration efforts.

ALAN is engaging private industry and supply-chain companies to help fulfill needs of these disaster relief organizations during this time of great need..

Currently, relief agencies are posting urgent needs on the ALAN portal: www.alanaid.org/relief-needs.php. These include requests for food, transportation, water, and warehouse space. Businesses seeking to provide help can log onto the portal, view posted requests, and make offers of support. To help the relief/recovery effort, this week ALAN was able to secure:

A van and driver provided by CEVA Logistics to transport consumable medical supplies in New York City for the New York Hospital Association
Transportation provided by UPS for cleanup kits from Louisiana and Utah to the Bronx, NY for the United Methodist Committee on Relief

HOW TO HELP

PLEASE DONATE RESPONSIBLY, AND ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO DO THE SAME: "...unloading and storing or disposing of unnecessary donations can take away from more important relief efforts. When trucks, planes or ships laden with donations arrive at a disaster site, responders face a difficult choice. Unloading and processing the cargo requires considerable human resources, yet if the cargo is not unloaded, it can block access for shipments that really are crucial..."(LA Times)
