The Demand of Oil and Gas force the industry to fulfil the needs around the world. That’s why the transportation of Oil and Gas is really necessary and becoming one of the most important part in Oil and Gas Industry.

After pass through several steps on exploration and production, Oil and Gas will be distributed around the world. There are Four primary methods to carry Oil and Gas to fulfill every demands around the world, those are :

A. Marine Vessels /Oil Tanker :
Marine Vessels in one of the best way to carry Oil and Gas since it can transport Oil and Gas all over the world with large quantities of Oil and Gas. Besides, Marine Vessels has an affordable prices, its amount to carry Oil and Gas per barrels is very cheap.

B. Pipelines :
Pipelines are called to be the best option to transport Oil and Gas on land. Although it costs a lot of money and time to set it up but it only cost less money for operational expenditure. Those why pipelines become the most cost efficient to move Oil and Gas on Land

C. Rail Transport :
Rail Transport or lokomotive with tanks on it and move through the rail are another option for move Oil and Gas across a landmass. Since it tanks can’t carry massive Oil and Gas as Oil Tanker, so The locomotive usually will carry few tanks on it. Rail Cars has became to be second option to move oil and gas around landmass and it is commonly used if the areas where pipelines can’t be set up

D. Trucks :

Trucks are another option more to move Oil and Gas across a landmass. The main difference between Trucks with Pipeline and Rail Transport is The Trucks are only used for carry smaller capacities of Oil and Gas in short distance.
