Crude Oil

Gunvor is one of the largest independent crude oil traders in the world, offtaking from producers of all sizes and managing the commodity’s transport, storage, and financing to counterparties across the globe.


Serves as the basis for a variety of petroleum products, such as propane, asphalt, petrochemical feedstocks and more.





Gunvor’s physical availability of crude oil continues to expand and diversify, and the company consistently trades more than a million barrels a day and has access to more than 10 million barrels of strategically located storage capacity.

Our crude oil trading specialists operate in Gunvor’s offices around the globe. They have first-hand knowledge and expertise in the markets, maintain long-term relationships with key market participants—producers, refiners, logistics companies and storage experts—and are actively involved in developing projects related to existing and new crude oil flows.

Thanks to Gunvor’s broad diversification, the company is not dependent on any individual supplier or group of suppliers of crude oil.

Key attributes of Gunvor’s trading include:

  • Effective management of market risk
  • Long-term relationships in key global markets
  • Expertise in identifying physical dislocations in the market
  • Extensive logistics capabilities
  • In-house market intelligence and analysis
  • Ownership of key physical assets that complement trading
  • The ability to structure or prefinance deals

Through Gunvor’s refinery in Ingolstadt, Germany, the company has additional optionality to source and process crude grades, which would not have been commercially practicable otherwise.

Gunvor Crude Oil team today is concentrating on exploring and consolidating trading opportunities and gaining new market shares. As part of this strategy, the company is developing relationships with smaller producers and capitalizing on structured financing capabilities to offer tailor-made solutions, while continuing to offtake crude cargoes from large producers.
