The most efficient mode of bulk transport for petroleum is the network of pipelines that are now found all over the world. Most crude-oil-producing areas are connected by pipeline either to refining centers or to a maritime loading port. In addition, many major crude-oil-receiving ports have extensive pipeline distribution networks to inland refineries. Centrifugal pumps usually provide the pumping power, with booster stations installed along the line as necessary. Most of the major product lines have been converted to fully automated operation, with the opening and closing of valves carried out by automatic sequence controls initiated from remote control centers.
