Energy companies use complex networks of onshore terminals, storage tanks, blending facilities and pipelines. These bulk logistical facilities take crude oil from ships, storing and delivering it to the refinery at the right time. Similarly, they store and blend refined product to create the exact specifications required in certain markets before transporting it on to the end customer.
In the case of gas, terminals tend to take deliveries from specialist tankers or pipelines from gas fields before testing, treating and distributing the gas regionally through pipelines. Alternatively, they store gasses derived from crude oil, such as butane, which are then bottled and used for cooking or heating, where there is no mains gas network.
Selizi Export Trading Group (JBIETG) invests in a number of ventures providing terminal and storage facilities globally. In total we have circa 5.9 million cubic meters of storage capacity in terminals across six continents.
