Pipeline transport represents one of the most important
means of moving oil derivatives to different locations. It is
both a reliable and inexpensive means of transport, and it
yields small variable costs along with a great degree of reliability. Pipeline scheduling is
not a trivial task; it involves considerable time from
schedulers. Discussed here is a real-application case of a tool
that helps schedulers simulate pipeline performance as a means
of creating a feasible schedule for a particular time span.
