Storage and transport of energy
In the oil and gas industry, the midstream sector refers to the storage, processing and transport of crude oil and raw natural gas as well as products derived from these. These processes are key to the production cycle and distribution within the petrochemical industry.
Whilst the maritime transport of oil and gas products usually takes the form of tankers, on land there are various means of transport, including oil and gas pipelines. Other land-based forms of transport, such as tank trucks, tend to be used for distributing end products derived from oil and gas. The most common means of transport are pipelines, which are used for transporting crude oil and products derived from it to refineries as well as for distributing refined products.
Although these are essential for transport and distribution, more is needed than just pipelines. Examples include storage tanks to keep liquids and gases at a specific pressure and temperature, these taking various forms and being made from a variety of different materials, and pumping stations.
