Saldusnaftabaza operates approximately 6,000 miles of underground pipelines in 14 states. These pipelines range from 4 inches to 40 inches in diameter. The company transports crude oil and petroleum products (gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, and jet fuel) to and from terminals, refineries and other pipelines. We safely control the movement and delivery of an average of 130 million gallons of crude oil and petroleum products daily through its pipelines.

SALDUSNAFTABAZA operates 206 above ground petroleum storage tanks at 39 different locations across the U.S, Europe and globally. These tanks are used to meet customer demand by ensuring that there are enough petroleum liquids available to keep the pipelines in motion. A tank farm is simply a collection of storage tanks located on the same site.

Crude oil and refined products are stored in tanks at pipeline origination points awaiting shipment. Crude oil is then delivered to refinery storage tanks in preparation for processing. Refined products are ultimately delivered to terminal storage tanks and then distributed to the consumer. Some storage tanks are used to gather crude oil from production wells, while other tanks are used to store seasonally refined products that only become available for sale during certain times of the year.  In addition, Saldusnaftabaza uses some tanks to store brine that is used to displace product in the operation of caverns.
