(y) “Transfer” means any movement of oil, including movements of bunker fuel, between the terminal and the vessel by means of pumping, gravitation or displacement. The term “transfer” also includes those movements of oil to, from or within any part of the terminal or vessel that are directly associated with the movement of oil or bunker fuel between the terminal and the vessel.
