Data Brief. 2019 Nov 14;27:104804. doi: 10.1016/j.dib.2019.104804. eCollection 2019 Dec.


This article provides data related to different activities in the hydrocarbon supply chain (HCSC). HCSC structures from Crude oil and natural gas supply chains. There are three main sectors in the HCSC related to activities in the production areas, processing plants, and demand terminals. The considered activities comprise the upstream sector of the crude oil and all sectors of the natural gas. The data were collected from Saudi Arabia, considering the main production and processing plants. The provided data are useful in tactical planning of crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas products of the HCSC. These data support the research article entitled "A Multi-Objective Optimization Model for Tactical Planning of Upstream Oil & Gas Supply Chains" [1].
