Executive Summary Tables

The MOTEMS Executive Summary (ES) Tables are structured to concisely communicate a marine oil terminal's fitness-for-purpose status, based on audit, inspection and evaluation results. These Tables are required to be maintained up-to-date in accordance with the MOTEMS Section 3102F.3 requirements.

Tables ES-1A, 1B and 1C (MOTEMS Tables 31F-2-7A through 7C) are intended to assert a terminal's fitness-for-purpose for operational (i.e. operating, mooring and berthing), seismic (including oil transfer pipelines) and inspected conditions (based on above and below water structural inspections). Assessment ratings are assigned to structures, systems and overall berths in the form of operational structural (OSARs), seismic structural (SSARs) and inspection condition (ICARs) assessment ratings in Tables ES-1A, 1B and 1C, respectively.

Table ES-2 (MOTEMS Table 31F-2-8) is intended to assert a terminals' structural, mechanical and electrical component deficiencies and assigned remedial action priorities.

Audit Manual and Checklists

The MOTEMS Audit Manual provides a structured template for methodically documenting a marine oil terminal's characteristics and assessing compliance during MOTEMS audits. The Manual is a compilation of 11 Checklists, one for each substantive Division/Section of MOTEMS. While not required for MOTEMS compliance purposes, these checklists have proven to be useful tools for compliance assessment and communications between terminal owners and operators, MOTEMS audit teams, and the Commission.

The "draft" MOTEMS Audit Manual templates (revised May 5, 2017) are available upon request. Please note that these templates may require updates.
