With 7 offices worldwide and a network of teams globally, we understand that every market is different. We work with our customers to identify and develop solutions which work best for them, helping them manage physical risk and optimise opportunities. Our trading presence is underpinned by a complementary infrastructure: refining, storage, distribution and a marketing network across The World . In all our physical operations we seek to work with partners which share our commitment to high international standards of operation. The infrastructure, upon which we rely from ships to jetties storage, is subject to our due diligence processes.
1. Naphtha Product
Naphtha refers to a range of volatile and flammable liquids produced by the distillation of petroleum. The liquids, which differ slightly in their chemical structures and boiling points, have various applications in the refining process – the main one as a feedstock for gasoline and the manufacture of olefins by the petrochemical industry. Each year we supply our naphtha customers, which include refiners, petrochemical companies and other industrials, with around 40,000,000 ( Forty Millions) Barrels of Naphtha product.
Bitumen is a semi-solid hydrocarbon product produced from refining crude but also occurs naturally. It is often referred to as asphalt and the terms are commonly used interchangeably; however, bitumen is the black oil product while asphalt is a combination of bitumen and aggregate stone. It is a very heavy, viscous material, is highly resistant to water and to environmental factors and requires storage and transportation at very high temperatures. around 2,500,000 (Two millions , Five Hundred Thousands ) Barrels of Bitumen traded every years.
LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is predominantly propane and butanes, either segregated or in various ratios and mixtures of each product. LPG is a by-product of crude oil production (Associated Gas) and a by-product of natural gas production (Non Associated Gas). It is also a by-product of the refinery process, transported mainly in pressurized vessels. Associated and Non Associated LPG or NGL’s (Natural Gas Liquids) are shipped via pipeline in large quantities where possible. As well as being a fundamental building block in the petrochemical process, LPG it also a convenient fuel used globally for domestic purposes; in the northern hemisphere, LPG is used for home heating, while in Africa it is used as a cooking gas. In some markets, LPG is also used as a fuel for cars (known as Autogas). We offer our customers a complete, end-to-end service. We operate a large fleet of purpose and constant supply of LPG to the local market. We trade 400,000 (Four Hundred Thousand) Tons of LPG annually.
Gasoline continues to fuel most of the Gasoline Station ; it is made by blending a number of refined products with this blend varying from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, depending on local requirements. We supply customers worldwide with the specification appropriate for their jurisdiction. We have a range of logistical assets from gasoline tankers to a network of owned or leased storage capacity in strategic locations, enabling our customers to benefit from operational flexibility. around 5,400,000 (Five Millions , Four Hundred Thousand) barrels of Gasoline traded every years
5. FUEL OIL
Fuel oil, which is the residue from distilling crude oil during the refining process, refers to a range of the least volatile and heaviest of the commercially used fuels. Some 10% of fuel oil produced is used to power large ships. A further 15% is used for heating and the remainder is used by refineries as feedstock for further upgrading. We add value for our fuel oil customers in numerous ways, such as deploying in-house blending capabilities to ensure we meet the requirements of fleet owners and refiners. Around 11,000,000 (Eleven millions) Barrels of Fuel oil traded every year.
6. BASE OIL
a- SN 150
Is defined as a light grade base oil at the lower end of the specifications for Grade I light base oils. They are mainly used in lubricant and lubricant additives production. It is a Group I base oil which has undergone solvent refining and dewaxing processes. To finish the refining it was hydrogen treated to clear out any impurities.
b- Base Oil SN 500
Is defined as a light grade base oil at the upper end of the specifications for Grade I base oils. They are mainly used in lubricant production. It is a Group I base oil which has undergone solvent refining and dewaxing processes. To finish the refining it was hydrogen treated to clear out any impurities.
c- Bright Stock or BS
Bright Stock or BS is defined as base oil at the upper end of the specifications for Grade I base oils. They are mainly used in lubricant and lubricant additive production. It is a Group I base oil which has undergone solvent refining and dewaxing processes. To finish the refining it was hydrogen treated to clear out any impurities. We have traded every year around 4,500,000 Barrels (Four Millions , Five Hundred Thousands ) Barrels Of base oil.
Some oils are light, can be used almost immediately and are therefore very valuable. Other oils are heavy and have to undergo additional refining processes before they can be used. One of the lightest and most valuable crude oils is condensate which is used to produce products like petrol, jet fuel, diesel and heating fuels. Around 5,000,000 Barrels (Five Millions Of Barrels )of Fuel oil traded every year.
