Basically, things are simple and laid out according to the picture:

- Butane and propane gas, in the form of LPG (liquid petroleum gas), are going to be used for domestic requirements and in gas-fuelled vehicles;
- Petrol and diesel will be used as automobile fuels;
- Naphtha goes off to a petrochemical complex, where it undergoes amazing transformations;
- Kerosene will be consumed as aviation fuel;
- Diesel fuel will make our diesel car engines work;
- Domestic fuels will be used to keep us warm in the winter;
- Oils will be the base for all lubricants;
- Bitumen products will seal the roads.
But, for certain products that we are able to offer customers, the refiner will upgrade the fractions even further, beyond the processes of conversion and upgrading already discussed. He will carry out judicious blending of different products to arrive at a finished product of quality, respecting environmental norms. For example, for petrol, he will be able to mix petrol from direct distillation and catalytic reforming, and add ETBE and certain additives that are beneficial for engine-life and performance. Each petroleum company selling petrol, jealously guards the secrets of these substances


There are numerous actors in the world of oil and gas. The best-known are, of course, the major oil companies and OPEC. But they are not the only ones. A myriad of companies, organisations and consultants all play a part in the “hydrocarbon universe”:

  • National companies, which, in many countries, manage oil production and defend national interests in the hydrocarbon sector;
  • Companies specialising in gas distribution,
  • National agencies & government departments with responsibility for energy matters (in France the DGEMP, the Department of Energy and Raw Materials; in the United States the DOE, the Department of Energy);
  • International organisations, such as OPEC (the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries), OAPEC (the Organisation of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries) or the IEA (the International Energy Agency);
  • Small independent oil companies, which take over oil fields near the end of their useful lives, or develop fields that have been abandoned by the major companies. Examples are Maurel et Prom in France, and many small independent companies in the United States;
  • Companies operating in the oil sector as suppliers of services to oil companies, mainly for exploration and production. Among the best known: Schlumberger, Halliburton, Gophysique, Goservices, Transocean Sedco Forex These companies are involved in specific technical areas (geophysical surveying and analysis, drilling, depth imaging, production equipment ), supplying oil companies with personnel and equipment that the latter do not own or employ themselves (for cost control reasons).
    The world of the petroleum services industry is vast and linked closely to exploration and production activities throughout the world;
  • Research institutes, which are often training centres too. The best known in France is the IFP (Institut Franais du Ptrole, or the French Oil Institute);
  • Independent consultants and other organisations or individuals who offer consultancy & design services and technical audits to the oil companies.

How Coastal Petro LLC can provide alternative resources to better serve our clients.

The petroleum products are taken from the refineries to the depots by bulk transport methods: pipelines, trains of tanker wagons, river/canal barges, boats. Depot capacities are very variable, on average between 10 000 and 300 000 m3. The principal products stored are heating oil, petrol and diesel, as well as special diesel fuels used by farmers and fishermen, and aviation fuel.

A petroleum depot consists of 10 to 30 steel tanks. A tank can be as large as 60 000 m3. Each depot has 3 to 12 loading bays for the road tankers that will deliver the products to different consumers.




Coastal Petro can also arrange for transportation through our client network

Whether oil is transported from production sites to the refineries by maritime or terrestrial routes, the main issues are those of safety, security and respect for the environment. At sea, everything must be done to avoid pollution; not only accidental oil spills but also the deliberate discharging of polluting products such as the residue from tank and bilge cleaning. On land the state of oil pipelines must be continually kept under surveillance and worn equipment replaced. Enormous quantities of oil transported are not used immediately. The same is true for a part of the output from refineries, what are called the finished products. Storage facilities ensuring total safety and security must therefore be planned for petroleum products. Coastal Petro LLC works directly with recognized transportation people and have built a relationship with various shipping companies, trucking companies and other vehicles that oil products are moved.

The largest quantities of oil and gas discovered are to be found in developing countries, far from the major consumers. These producer countries easily meet their own needs and export the greater part of their production.

On the other hand, developed countries, major energy consumers, are not self-sufficient in oil and gas, far from it: they are therefore hydrocarbon importers. Even in developed countries that are also major producers, such as the United States, the production zones are often far from the centres where crude and gas is required.

As a result, for several decades now, enormous quantities of oil and gas have been transported all over the world by sea and on land. Coastal Petro LLC is your source to gaining this direct relationship and broker free. Call now and see what we can do in a short period of time.
