Welcome to this online course on logistics of oil and petroleum products.

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 fuels 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 online training course on logistics of oil & petroleum products 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 :

PART 1. 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.

PART 2. 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.
