Platts Publishes its First North American Crude Oil System Map

NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Platts, a leading global energy, petrochemicals and metals information provider, has expanded its portfolio of maps with the release of its first-edition North American Crude Oil System Map. This detailed, printed wall map presents in striking color the primary components and latest projects of North America's expansive crude oil system.

In addition to its base geographical features, this map offers an at-a-glance view of the growing oil production activity in the U.S. and Canada and resulting industry and transportation infrastructure, including:

  • Existing and proposed crude oil pipelines
  • Crude oil refineries sized by capacity
  • Crude oil rail terminals
  • River barge terminals
  • Oil ports
  • Railroads

Utilizing Petroleum Project Tracker data from Bentek Energy*, Platts' oil and natural gas analytics unit, Platts cartographers have pinpointed existing and proposed crude oil pipeline and refinery projects, which are identified by symbol, colored by ownership and labeled with the owner name.

For convenient reference, a data table inset lists the full name, operator name and capacity of crude oil refineries. There are also map insets with details of the following U.S. oil hubs: Mont Belvieu and Corpus Christi, Texas; Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana; Cushing, Oklahoma; and offshore Gulf of Mexico.

The map measures 42" x 66" and is available in both print and digital formats, or as a combination of the two. The glossy version ($560**) is suitable for framing and/or display, and the laminated version ($560**) can be marked upon to facilitate analysis and planning. An enhanced CD-ROM ($595**) encapsulates the wall map's content in a portable format. Click here for full product specifications and purchasing options.

Platts offers more than 50 maps and maps products, in addition to a wide variety of Geographic Information System (GIS) data.

Platts' maps and spatial data have been featured by broadcast and print media outlets including The New York Times, Newsweek, TIME and National Geographic.

* Bentek Energy, an oil and natural gas specialist unit, was acquired by Platts in 2011.

**These prices do not include shipping costs and sales tax.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
