iii FOREWORD Throughout the history of marine custody transfers of petroleum cargos, little serious at- tention has been paid to determining the amount of material in shore or vessel lines before and after the transfers. As more-accurate equipment and methods of measurement were de- veloped, the need to determine line °ll with more accuracy became apparent. By establish- ing recommended procedures, this guideline should improve line fill determination activities and assist in making results reproducible at loading and discharge ports. The result should be improved accuracy of custody transfer volumes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
