Upstream and downstream oil companies

DOWNSTREAM: The final sector of the oil and natural gas industry is known as ‘downstream.’ This includes everything involved in turning crude oil and natural gas into thousands of finished products we depend on every day. Integrated Oil & Gas Company: A company that has upstream as well as downstream operations. Examples include Saudi Aramco, ExxonMobil, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, and ChevronTexaco. Independent Oil & Gas Company: A company that has either upstream or downstream operations, but not both. The oil and gas industry is usually divided into three major sectors: upstream, midstream, and downstream. The downstream sector is the refining of petroleum crude oil and the processing and purifying of raw natural gas, as well as the marketing and distribution of products derived from crude oil and natural gas. The downstream sector reaches consumers through products such as gasoline or petrol, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel oil, heating oil, fuel oils, lubricants, waxes, asphalt, natural gas, and

Watch the short 'Upstream vs Downstream' video below to learn more about how upstream and downstream segments of the oil and gas industry work together: 

The oil and gas industry is divided into three components or sectors: the upstream, midstream, and downstream. Note that these three sectors also correspond to the three major categories of activities of the oil and gas industry value chain. Furthermore, these three represent the chronology of critical oil and gas activities. Upstream companies: These are the companies which are primarily involved in exploration and production of crude oil I.e. extraction of crude oil from subsurface. Many national oil companies like ONGC, OIL,Petronas and private players like Shell, Reliance etc can be said to belong in this category . Downstream sector. The downstream sector of the oil and gas industry involves the refining of the crude oil and/or raw natural gases obtained in the upstream sector as well as selling or distributing the products obtained. This includes facilities such as petrochemical plants, oil refineries, natural gas distribution companies, retail outlets (i.e. gas stations), etc. DOWNSTREAM: The final sector of the oil and natural gas industry is known as ‘downstream.’ This includes everything involved in turning crude oil and natural gas into thousands of finished products we depend on every day. Integrated Oil & Gas Company: A company that has upstream as well as downstream operations. Examples include Saudi Aramco, ExxonMobil, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, and ChevronTexaco.

Upstream and downstream are the main two sectors and the body of the oil and gas industry. Upstream in oil and gas is also known for the exploration and production sector and it contains three essential activities which they are the exploration, drilling, and production. The downstream is all about the products you get after extracting oil and gas.
