Rotterdam Europort : Ideal location for crude oil supply

The oil refineries in the port of Rotterdam receive their crude oil by tanker from areas including the North Sea region, Russia and the Middle East. The port of Rotterdam offers the advantage that even the largest oil tankers can enter the port and load and unload at the oil terminals in a single visit. The crude oil is transported by pipeline to the refineries in Rotterdam and the hinterland.

Cluster with Vlissingen, Antwerp and Germany

The petrochemical cluster in Rotterdam is not isolated. Together with the refineries of Total/Lukoil in Vlissingen, Shell in Godorf, BP/Rosneft in Gelsenkirchen and Total and ExxonMobil in Antwerp, the port of Rotterdam makes up one of the three largest fuel hubs in the world. Excellent distribution possibilities within Europe and overseas and the broad range of tank storage ensure that also large-scale trade in fuels takes place in Rotterdam.
