Our crude oil trading business has longstanding relationships with producers and refiners worldwide. We help the former to effectively market and distribute their daily production, and the latter to secure a reliable and consistent supply of the right quality crude at the right time.
In the crude oil market, we use our global presence, market knowledge and logistics capabilities to balance supply and demand, optimise supply chains and service the needs of our customers around the world. We operate primarily as physical traders. We source oil from a variety of counter-parties including public production companies, oil majors and national oil companies.
Physical trading requires sustainable supplier and customer relationships combined with excellent logistics, financial skills, risk management and marketing competence. In order to establish ourselves as a recognised international trading company, we pay attention to each and every step of our managing and delivery of trading services. Our effective business strategy and profitable relationship with leading companies and large refineries have enabled us to provide products of unquestionable quality and competitive price which makes BTC a strong participant in the European and Asian oil markets. BTC offers you a wide range of products, such as: crude, light distillates, middle distillates, heavy petroleum fractions, fuel gas, petrochemicals and additives.
BTC’s crude oil team has built strong technical capabilities. This, combined with our deep understanding of physical flows, allows us to identify complex technical issues and respond rapidly to changing market dynamics for non-standard crude oil opportunities.
Petroleum crude oil, commonly referred to as crude oil, is a complex mixture of hundreds of compounds including solids, liquids, and gases that are separated by the refining process. Crude oil is one of the most sought after commodities. This naturally occurring liquid fossil fuel can be refined into diesel, gasoline, heating oil, jet fuel, kerosene and various forms of petrochemicals. BTC provides supply routes of all the key crude grades by sea, rail and pipeline transport.
Diesel fuel in general is any liquid fuel used in diesel engines, whose fuel ignition takes place, without any spark, as a result of compression of the inlet air mixture and then injection of fuel. Diesel engines have found broad use as a result of higher thermodynamic efficiency and thus fuel efficiency.
Gasoline or petrol is a clear petroleum-derived flammable liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in most spark-ignited internal combustion engines. It consists mostly of organic compounds obtained by the fractional distillation of petroleum, enhanced with a variety of additives.
Base Oil is the name given to lubrication grade oils initially produced from refining crude oil (mineral base oil) or through chemical synthesis (synthetic base oil). Base oil is typically defined as oil with a boiling point range between 550 and 1050 F, consisting of hydrocarbons with 18 to 40 carbon atoms
Jet fuel is a clear to straw-colored fuel, based on either an unleaded kerosene (Jet A-1), or a naphtha-kerosene blend (Jet B). Similar to diesel fuel, it can be used in either compression ignition engines or turbine engines.The fuel type is kerosene. Jet A-1 has a flash point higher than 38°C and a freezing point of -47°C. Jet A is a similar kerosene fuel type that is normally available only in the U.S. After refining, aviation fuel is mixed with extremely small amounts of several
