Procurement Resource’s detailed report describes the stepwise consumption of material and utilities along with a detailed process flow diagram. Furthermore, the study assesses the latest developments within the industry that might influence crude oil production cost analysis, looking into capacity expansions, plant turnarounds, mergers, acquisitions, and investments.

Procurement Resource Assessment of Crude Oil Production Process:

1. Crude oil Production Cost  Via distillation, cracking, and reforming: This report presents the detailed production methodology and cost analysis of Crude oil industrial production across Crude oil manufacturing plants. In the initial step, the crude oil components are separated based on their volatility which includes processes such as distillation, cracking, and reforming. This changes the hydrocarbon’s properties according to the desired product.

Product Definition:

Crude oil or petroleum is a naturally occurring liquid made up of hydrocarbons that is found below the surface of the Earth. It was created over the course of millions of years from the buried remains of ancient plants and sea animals that had been subjected to intense heat and pressure. Depending on the oil field, the composition of the oil varies, but it often comprises of various hydrocarbons, including alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatic compounds. The API gravity of crude oil is based on its density, which can range from light to heavy. While heavier oils have a higher density and lower API gravity, lighter oils have a lower density. The viscosity of crude oil varies in different ways. While heavier oils have greater viscosities and flow more slowly, lighter oils have lower viscosities and do so more readily.

Market Drivers:

Crude oil prices are influenced by a variety of factors, both on the supply side and the demand side. Here are some of the key market drivers affecting crude oil prices:

  1. Global Economic Growth: Economic expansion tends to increase demand for oil as businesses require more energy for manufacturing and transportation activities. Conversely, economic slowdowns can reduce demand, putting downward pressure on prices.
  2. Supply Disruptions: Any disruptions in oil-producing regions, such as conflicts, geopolitical tensions, natural disasters, or labor strikes, can lead to supply shortages and cause prices to rise.
  3. OPEC and Non-OPEC Production Decisions: The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), along with non-OPEC oil-producing countries like Russia, plays a significant role in influencing oil prices through production decisions. OPEC’s decisions to cut or increase production quotas directly impact global oil supply levels.
  4. Inventories and Stockpiles: Oil inventories, including both crude oil and refined products, are closely monitored by market participants. Changes in inventory levels can signal shifts in supply and demand dynamics, thereby affecting prices.
  5. Geopolitical Events: Political instability or conflicts in major oil-producing regions can disrupt supply and lead to price volatility. Examples include tensions in the Middle East or sanctions on oil-producing countries.
  6. Currency Strength: The value of the US dollar relative to other currencies can influence oil prices. Oil is priced in dollars, so a weaker dollar makes oil cheaper for buyers using other currencies, potentially increasing demand and prices.
  7. Technological Advances: Advances in technology, such as hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and horizontal drilling, have enabled the extraction of oil from previously inaccessible reserves, affecting global supply levels.
  8. Environmental Regulations: Regulations aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting renewable energy sources can affect oil demand over the long term, particularly in transportation and industrial sectors.
  9. Weather Patterns: Extreme weather events, such as hurricanes or prolonged cold spells, can disrupt oil production, refining, and transportation infrastructure, leading to short-term supply disruptions and price spikes.
  10. Speculative Trading: Financial market participants, including hedge funds and institutional investors, engage in speculative trading of oil futures and derivatives, which can amplify price movements based on market sentiment and expectations.

These factors interact in complex ways, and the interplay between supply and demand dynamics ultimately determines crude oil prices in the global market.
