What is oil transport?

Getting oil to the market is a process that requires various transportation and storage technologies, also known as “midstream”. As oil is often produced in remote locations from where it will be consumed, transportation networks have been built to transport crude oil to refineries for processing as well as to be shipped for consumption. Most oil and gas logistics companies in Singapore tend to have storage facilities for temporary storing of these products.

How is oil usually transported?

Oil is normally transported by:

  1. Oil Pipeline – this is the most common form of oil transportation. Pipelines are typically used to move crude oil from the wellhead to processing facilities and refineries. It is the transportation method of choice as pipelines require significantly less energy to operate than trucks or rail; they also have a lower carbon footprint, and thus are often considered by companies who have environmental sustainability in mind.

  2. Ship – this is a cost-effective alternative as compared to pipelines. It is often used where oil transport over land is unsuitable. Compared to a pipeline, barges are cheaper by 20-35% depending on the route. Tank barges usually carry petrochemicals and natural gas feedstocks to chemical plants. The main drawbacks considered by companies are speed and environmental concerns.

  3. Truck – Though it is the most limited oil transportation method in terms of storage capacity, trucks have the greatest flexibility in potential destinations. Trucks are usually the last step in the transportation process, delivering oil and refined petroleum products to the intended storage locations.
