Crude oil blending is used to increase the sale price or process-ability of a lower grade crude oil by blending it with a higher grade, higher priced crude. Based on specific customer crude quality demands, Alpinia Shipping B.V. can provide the in-line blending of crude types for customers.

Alpinia Shipping B.V. can blend from crudes residing in two caverns, two tanks or a cavern and a tank, based on a set ratio of the two sources.  By using the Alpinia Shipping B.V. in-line blending service, refineries benefit by freeing up valuable private resources while still getting a quality crude oil product that meets their own specifications as needed for processing.

Alpinia Shipping B.V. also has installed a P-43 mixer system in it's system tank allowing effective in-tank blending services.
