completed by August 6, 2008. High risk facilities are determined by the total volume of flowing and stored oil; lower risk levels are determined based on the number of transfers per year and the maximum size of vessels that may call on the terminal. The MOTEMS are currently being used for new design and construction. A number of updates are currently being proposed, including a reduction in run-up heights for potential tsunamis in the San Francisco Bay, a new methodology to calculate forces on moored vessels, from passing vessels and a new equation to determine design loads for multiple quick release mooring hooks. Currently under development is a new, alternate method to determine the structural performance of wharf/pier structures. This new methodology should be completed in late 2007
