Abstract: Considering the present scenario, in the hydrocarbon industries, heavy oil prices and need for explorations leads to decide the economy of the country. Technology had been identified and experimentally considered for new hydrocarbon exploration with the help of data mining. Besides, transportation and storage of the produced Hydrocarbon has been monitored and can be maintained in control limit using data mining too. Hydrocarbon can be stored within a tank made up of steel, iron or combination of suitable material. The tanks are properly designed, erected and all its fittings are secured. Proper construction and maintained will aid in preventing any leakage of petroleum products to the environment. Current study is about influence of hydrocarbon transportation and storage using available methodology in upstream hydrocarbon sectors. Petroleum reservoir consist of complex heterogeneities that are not limited to extract the hydrocarbon from the subsurface to surface. Post drilling, produced crude and gas will be transported fuel have to transported to refineries for further processing of crude into various products. Apart from upstream, persons working on midstream and downstream plays a crucial role. Crude hydrocarbon can be transported by vessels, pipelines and road. Pipeline and truck transportation are considered to be the prior most than other modes. Transporting oil and gas by pipeline or rail is in general quite safe. But when the safety of transporting oil and gas by pipelines and rail is compared, taking into consideration the amount of product moved, pipe-lines are found to be the much safer transportation method. Refinery has to ensure safety aspects of storing the received petroleum crude which has to be processed in to commercial products. They must be maintained in prescribed temperature and pressure condition. In order to make this successful, some of the safety protocols has to be followed which are defined and approved ministry and safety norms. This article deals about the process and procedures in transporting and storage of fuels from upstream, midstream and downstream. Hence, the protocols and other safety precaution aspects are discussed to have a safe storage and handling practices.
