Medanito crude oil blend is transported east to the Atlantic port of Puerto Rosales
near Bahia Blanca via the 500 mile long Oldelval pipeline. There are two Single
Point Buoy Mooring (SBM) moorings at Puerto Rosales. Typical cargo size is 60,000
to 90,000 cubic meters (370 to 570 thousand barrels) depending on which monobuoy
is used. Larger cargoes can be lifted by using a reverse lightering operation.
