Chapter 7

Transportation

Abstract

Most crude oil and natural gas fields are at a considerable distance from the refineries that convert crude oil into usable products, and therefore the oil must be transported in pipelines and tankers. However, most crude oil needs some form of treatment near the reservoir before it can be carried to considerable distances through the pipelines or in the tankers. Railroad cars and motor vehicles are also used to a large extent for the transportation of petroleum products. This chapter focuses on the preparation of crude oil and natural gas for transportation and the methods used to move and store the crude oil and gas from the well.
