THE PANAMA CANAL RECORD



Current Net Prices on Fuel Oil, Diesel Oil,
and Coal.

Crude fuel oil is delivered to vessels at either
Cristobal or Balboa, from tanks of The Panama
Canal, for S2.00 per barrel of 42 gallons.

Diesel oil is sold by the Canal at $2.35 per
barrel.

Crude fuel oil and Diesel oil are also sold by
private companies with tanks at the Canal
terminals, at prices which will be quoted by them
on application. The prices at present range as
follows: Crude fuel oil, $1.90 and $2.00 per bar-
rel at Cristobal and Balboa; Diesel oil, Balboa
only, $2.35 per barrel.

Coal is supplied to steamships, including war-
ships of all nations, delivered and trimmed in
bunkers at $9 per ton of 2,240 pounds at Cris-
tobal, and $12 at Balboa. For ships in transit
through the Canal, which are directed to take
coal at Balboa, for the convenience of The
Panama Canal, $9 per ton at Balboa. When
coal is delivered from lighters in Quantities of 50
tons or more, the price is $10 per ton at Cristobal,
$13 at Balboa. For delivering lump coal for
galley use, in sacks, $12 additional per ton; but
if vessel furnishes sacks, $5 per ton additional.

Effective September 1, 1924, the price of coal
will be reduced to $8.50 per ton at Cristobal and
$11.50 at Balboa.

Coal for cargo is sold only by special authority
of the Governor, at prices quoted upon applica-
tion.

For trimming on deck, between decks, or
special trimming in bunkers for convenience of
vessel, when requested, an additional charge of
90 cents per ton will be made for extra handling.

Deliveries of coal can be made at the rate of
from 100 to 700 tons an hour, as fast as the ships
can receive it in their bunkers. Oil deliveries
can be made up to 2,000 barrels per hour, rate
depending on gravity of oil, location of shore
tanks, and ship's facilities for handling.



Facilities for Shipping.

The Panama Canal is equipped with all the
facilities for the fueling, supply, and repair of
•hips which are found in modern ports.

The coaling plants, with an aggregate storage
capacity of 700,000 tons, bunker ships at the
rate of from 100 to 500 tons an hour, practically
as fast as the nature of the vessel will allow. Oil
