Shipping & Logistics

Marine vessels are the second most cost-effective medium of transport, domestically and internationally.
Large tankers, holding an average of 2 million barrels of crude oil per movement, carry `dirty’ cargo like crude oil and unrefined commodities. Smaller vessels handle transport of `clean’, refined material like diesel, gasoline, and jet fuel.

Ship Transport

Another good way to move fuel from one location to another is via ship or barge. There are plenty of barges transporting gas and oil inland along rivers and via oceans, such as along the Gulf Coast, to Corpus Christi, and to other oil refineries on the Louisiana and Texas coasts. This coastal area is also referred to as “refinery row.” Some of the pluses of using ships to transport petroleum include:

  • Inexpensive – Moving crude via barge or ship is one of the least costly methods of transport.
  • Flexible Waterways – Boats can move barrels of oil through inland and coastal waterways. For example, it can be shipped via the Mississippi River, Hudson River, Atlantic, and/or Pacific Oceans.
  • Large Capacities – Tank barges carry huge amounts of oil; a typical tank barge can hold 30,000 barrels
  • Multiple Barges Available – There are approximately 275 tank barges and integrated tug-barges available to ship oil.

Ships and barges are another convenient way of transporting oil especially overseas.

There are very many barges moving oil and gas inland by the rivers too and through the seas and oceans all the way to designated refineries around the world.
