The transporting of liquid petroleum products

Let’s begin with where most liquid petroleum products get their start: crude oil. Crude oil is transported from production operations to refineries using various means such as tankers, barges, rail tank cars, tank trucks, and pipelines. Refineries process the crude oil to obtain various petroleum products, with one of the major products being liquid petroleum such as gasoline and diesel.

Those same modes of transport deliver refined petroleum products to fuel marketing terminals and petrochemical industries.

That is where C Three Logistics comes in. The C Three Logistics team consists of skilled drivers trained in both local and long-distance transportation, proficient in handling a wide range of commodities. Additionally, our drivers are certified with CTEP training, guaranteeing the delivery of your liquid petroleum products with top-notch service.

Our location in Newfield, NJ, places us in close proximity to key ports and distribution centers, facilitating efficient transportation and logistics services. This strategic advantage enables us to provide faster and more responsive solutions for the materials we transport.

Tanker trucks, like the ones utilized by C Three Logistics, play a vital role in transporting liquid petroleum products. Although they operate similarly to rail transportation, their primary function is to deliver refined petroleum products, such as gasoline, to distribution points like gas stations. Unlike rail transport, trucks offer the advantage of enhanced flexibility as they can navigate roadways instead of relying solely on established railways. We leverage our logistics and communication technology to maximize efficiency when it comes to your transport.

Liquid petroleum products also include propane. Around 90% of the propane fuel supply in the United States is produced domestically, mainly sourced from natural gas and crude oil processing.

Approximately 70% of the nation’s propane supply is derived from natural gas. Through a separation process, propane and butane are extracted from other gases.

During the stabilization process of crude oil refining, propane is produced as a by-product when separating heavier hydrocarbons. Unlike gasoline and diesel, propane is lighter and more readily extracted from other petroleum derivatives. Additionally, this process yields kerosene and heating oil.

At first, propane is compressed and stored in liquid form, which is how it’s transported by C Three Logistics and later delivered to your home’s propane tank by your propane delivery service. However, as it is transported from the propane tank to your home through gas lines, it returns to its gaseous state.
