 The major market for crude oil, which is produced in the Caspian region, and petroleum products, produced at the southern refineries of Russia and CIS countries, is the South European countries market. The transport infrastructure of these countries for delivery of oil products to consumers is designed for sea supply. In this work special attention is paid to the condition and development of port terminals and transport systems connecting port tank farms with consumers of oil products. The main capacity of the oil industry in the south of Europe is concentrated in the most developed countries. The method of quantitative analysis is used to study the transport infrastructure possibilities and the production of petroleum products in this region under study. With the help of this method it is possible to establish the correspondence of the transport infrastructure possibilities with expected and existing freight flows. The analysis of the capabilities of oil refineries that consume crude oil in this region is given. The possibilities of enterprises providing reserve capacities of oil energy resources are considered. Based on the last decade data for the oil consumption and refining in the countries of the region, the tendencies of development of supply chains for the oil industry in the south of Europe are being investigated. The main regions of crude oil consumption are outlined, the prospects for the development of oil production in the countries of southeast Europe are shown. The presented analysis makes it possible to identify the most significant areas of southern Europe for the implementation of oil supply chains in the region, to build the most efficient cargo flows for shippers.
