运输石油和天然气

Advances in exploration and production have helped to locate and recover a supply of oil and natural gas from major reserves across the globe. At the same time, demand for petroleum-based products has grown in every corner of the world. But supply and demand are rarely concentrated in the same place. Transportation therefore is vital to ensuring the reliable and affordable flow of petroleum we all count on to fuel our cars, heat our homes and improve the quality of our lives.

经过验证,有效且经济的连接石油供需手段,油轮,铁路和管道。供应端管道和铁路将原油从生产区域携带到港口的装载端子。然后,油轮将原油直接携带到需求侧管道,连接到炼油厂,将原料转化为有用的产品。

油轮

今天的尖端油轮是致力于安全结合计算机辅助设计的能力的产品。因此,海洋的新船舶更强大,更具可动性,更耐用,而不是其前辈。

管道

该国拥有超过19万英里的液体管道和超过300,000英里的天然气管道,这是将石油产品转移到消费市场的主要手段。管道安全,高效,因为大多数都被埋葬,在很大程度上看不见。

管道性能跟踪系统

The Pipeline Performance Tracking System, PPTS, is a key component of the oil pipeline industry's Environmental and Safety Initiative, a multi-discipline approach to understanding and improving industry performance.

铁路运输

Railroad infrastructure supports the transportation needs of industries as diverse as oil and gas, manufacturing, and agriculture. North America benefits from an integrated railway system that is vital to reaching otherwise underserved markets. Railroads are a safe and efficient means of transporting crude oil and other petroleum products.
