Logistics of Crude Oil and Petroleum Products

Explore the logistics of crude oil and petroleum products - transport and dispatch of oil and gas demystified

Course Summary

Dear student,

Ever wondered how crude oil is transported from remote production wells like in Siberia or Arabian desert to refineries ? and then how commercial petroleum products like gasoline or diesel fuel are dispatched from refineries to your gas station so that you can fill up your car and go to work ?

If you're curious about that then you've come to the right place !

This course is designed to give you a comprehensive picture of the international oil logistics : from transport of crude oil to refineries, to dispatch of commercial petroleum products.

The course is organized into 2 parts :

  1. The first part is an analysis of transport problems, particularly the transport of crude oil. We discuss : sea transport first, different types of tankers, different types of charters, costs and prices for this type of transport, the regulatory framework and operational matters. Then we consider transport by pipeline.
  2. The second part deals with the different ways of delivering finished products from a refinery : by water, pipeline, rail or road, and the different restrictions that apply to them. Finally, we review the various controls that apply to dispatch.

This training course will highlight :
  • - Up-to-date global statistics of oil & gas
  • - Update you of the various methods and technologies used to transport oil, gas and their products
  • - Essentials of international oil and gas supply, economics and transportation
  • - Primary logistics – tanker freight costs and chartering

I am working on a mathematical model of crude oil transportation from wells to refineries. This course was very informative about many logistics issues that I was not aware of.
