Subject:<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Tahoma","sans-serif""> Winter months draft limitation

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:black">Friends,

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:black">As winter is soon approaching, I wanted to remind everyone that the 45' maximum draft allowed up to Shell is with a minimum of a zero tide.  As cold fronts push through our area, and we lose water in our Bay we limit the draft accordingly.  You may wish to consider a "one to two foot cushion" to avoid any delays due to low water.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:black">Terminals should consider maximizing inventory as a protracted fog closure could impact our port for days at a time.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:black"> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Arial","sans-serif";color:black">Please call if there are any questions or concerns.
