Transportation
The transportation and delivery
of crude oil is a big global business and an important
part of the downstream sector. It includes the transfer of
crude oil to the consuming countries and the distribution and sale of the
products made from crude oil.
Getting oil from a well to a refinery, and getting the products to service
stations, requires a complex system of transportation and storage. In fact,
millions of barrels of oil are transported around the world every day
through these pipeline networks, on fleets of tankers and
on thousands of railway tanks and trucks.
