dc.description.abstractThe proposed onshore deepwater port is a much needed and desired facility. Economic advantages and disadvantages of both onshore and offshore ports are discussed. Average annual utilization, increasing consumption of non-energy resources, future growth and transportation needs of the Houston-Galveston megalopolis around Galveston Bay, recent developments in shallow-draft vessels, and the impact of additional jobs and expenditures resulting from the operation of the port are all factors which must be included in the economic evaluation.en_US
