Tranmere Oil TerminalEdit profile
Tranmere Oil Terminal is situated on the River Mersey, 1½ miles south of Birkenhead. It was opened on 8 June 1960 to handle vessels of up to 65,000 tons, and is connected to the Stanlow Oil Refinery by a 15-mile pipeline. Part of the terminal occupies the site of a former ferry service to Liverpool, with the extant pier considerably modified.
The terminal is operated by the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board.
