FUELLING THE WORLD

Oil and petroleum products

Oil and petroleum products such as gasoline, jet fuel, diesel and fuel oil are an essential part of the global energy mix today, used for transportation and by a wide range of industries. They will continue to play an important role in supporting growing global energy demand during the transition currently underway to a low-carbon economy.

As one of the world’s largest suppliers of energy, our teams have significant expertise in moving oil and petroleum products to customers around the world - safely, reliably and efficiently.

ENERGISING THE GLOBAL ECONOMY

A single barrel of crude oil has many uses and end consumers

Crude oil is a raw material than can produce a wide array of products, each playing a crucial role in our everyday lives. Trafigura sources, stores and supplies many of these petroleum products, including gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, bitumen and heavy fuel oil. We also blend fuels to comply with environmental regulations and enhance their performance for end-users.

SUPPLY CHAIN SOLUTIONS

Delivering petroleum products to remote locations

Through our global network, we can reach remote locations with petroleum products essential to everyday life. To supply landlocked communities in Paraguay and Bolivia, our distillates team sources products from refineries around the world and ships them to the Campana Terminal at the mouth of the Rio Paraná in Argentina. Here, the product is unloaded and placed onto river barges for the journey inland via the Paraguay River. We are the largest importer of diesel and other middle distillate products on the Paraná-Paraguay Waterway.

ALTERNATIVE FUELS

Making aviation sustainable

In recognition of the role sustainable aviation fuel has to play in the decarbonisation of the global airline industry, we are working with companies across the supply chain to understand how we can help balance supply and demand for new fuels, utilising our logistics know-how and operational expertise. 

This is part of a wider push to diversify our oil and petroleum business, offering new products to meet the needs of our customers. This includes biofuels, which can be blended with fossil fuels or used as a low-carbon alternative.
