How does oil go from offshore rig to tanker to land for refining?

Assuming they don't use pipeline, I guess they must store the oil that's pumped up on the rig while they wait for the tanker? For example for the Thunder Horse project that does 250,000 barrels per day, how often do tankers come and transport the oil back to land?
