Product Tankers

Product Tanker

Product tankers carry refined petroleum products from oil refineries to ports around the world, where the products are transferred to trucks and rail cars to be distributed to consumers

Product tankers are much smaller than the crude carriers; the most recent are only around 20,000 tons and just short of 180 m (600 ft) long. Besides being smaller than crude carriers, products tankers are more complex. Instead of consisting of a single giant tank, they feature multiple tanks that can carry a variety of refined products.
