Breathing room for the global oil storage market

  • RSS Feed

Oil storage is a vital link in the midstream crude oil value chain, petroleum products and chemicals. Buoyed by the rapid growth of the emerging economies, the rising demand for crude and petroleum products, and volatile crude oil prices, the oil storage industry is expected to show an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 2.8% for 2009–2013

Much of this growth comes from emerging markets such as China, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), India, Canada, Iran, the Netherlands, France, Poland, Singapore and South Korea, which are expected to contribute a quarter of the total global storage capacity by 2013.
