I was a cadet on an oil tanker. We mostly did product (regular,diesel, premium) and sometimes ethanol. So I have pretty good experience on that side of things. I might actually get on a crude tanker. Anyone work on them can give me any insights? Reading a lot on crude oil washing. Also I worked on a tanker where valves are all operated by a computer. How are those different compared to where it’s actual switches on a board? I’m so used to where I can see everything on the computer (rate, ullage, pressure, etc). How are loading and discharging compressor to product? Since it’s just one type of cargo(crude) how often do you tank switch? Or do you just have all tanks open?
