--> Deadweight tonnage. Measure of the weight of cargo (plus water, fuel, and stores) that a vessel can carry. Gross tonnage. Measure of a vessel's volume determined according to international convention. Hydrostatically balanced loading. Means whereby the level of cargo (e.g., crude oil) is limited to ensure that the hydrostatic pressure at the tank (and ship) bottom is lower than the external sea pressure. Thus, if the tank is breached, seawater will flow in rather than oil flowing out. International Maritime Organization. United Nations agency responsible for maritime safety and environmental protection of the seas. Lightering. Process of transferring cargo at sea from one vessel to another. Oil-bulk-ore vessel. Vessel designed for alternate carriage of oil, bulk cargoes, or ore. Required freight rate. The rate required to cover tanker operating expenses and realize a desired return on capital. Segregated ballast tank. Tank designed for ballast only. Ultralarge crude carrier. Vessel of more than 400,000 DWT. Very large crude carrier. Vessel of between about 150,000 and 300,000 DWT.
