What we do

We sit at the heart of global energy flows, moving energy and bulk materials from source to customer as quickly, responsibly and cost-effectively as possible. Our business is founded on the long-term relationships we’ve built with our customers, on our expertise, market understanding and reputation for reliably delivering the required products, on time and on specification.

Terminals & storage

Energy companies use complex networks of onshore terminals, storage tanks, blending facilities and pipelines. These bulk logistical facilities take crude oil from ships, storing and delivering it to the refinery at the right time. Similarly, they store and blend refined product to create the exact specifications required in certain markets before transporting it on to the end customer.

In the case of gas, terminals tend to take deliveries from specialist tankers or pipelines from gas fields before testing, treating and distributing the gas regionally through pipelines. Alternatively, they store gasses derived from crude oil, such as butane, which are then bottled and used for cooking or heating, where there is no mains gas network

Butrol BV invests in a number of ventures providing terminal and storage facilities globally. In total we have circa 18 million cubic meters of storage capacity in terminals across six continents.

Trading

With our terminal connectivity 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 six continents. 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.
