MORALES, Jonnathan; QUITIAQUEZ, William  and  SIMBANA, Isaac. Mathematics optimization models for downstream and midstream petroleum sectors. Literature review and future research directions. Revista Técnica energía [online]. 2020, vol.17, n.1, pp.103-112. ISSN 2602-8492.

This article resumes a literature review about Integer Linear and No-linear programming models (MILP and MINLP) applied to petroleum supply chain, especially for Downstream and Midstream sectors. These sectors work in the hydrocarbons’ production, tailored and distribution for final uses, such as intermediate distillates and LPG. The aim of this research is contrast different research articles of operations research, especially which considered multiproduct pipeline transport. The main aim of this article has focused on a future approach of research for petroleum supply chain in the Downstream and Midstream sectors. Of the articles analyzed, the 32 articles tailored a MILP, about of 26 tailored a fuel`s distribution structure in Downstream sector. There is not evidence of MILP and MINLP researched in Ecuador. Finally, discuses about futures lines of research in this topic, such as applied a MILP for operative programing in multi-products pipelines network of Ecuador’s petroleum supply chain. Tools that in the future will lead take effectives decisions a tactic and operative level, considered whole variables in the distributions multi-products pipelines network for satisfied the demand.
