The petroleum industry includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting and marketing of petroleum products. The largest volume products of the industry are fuel oil and gasoline (petrol). Petroleum (oil) is also the raw material for many chemical products, including pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides, synthetic fragrances, and plastics. The industry is usually divided into three major components: upstream, midstream, and downstream.
The upstream sector consists of processes and operations that involve searching for potential underground or underwater crude oil and natural gas fields, drilling of exploratory wells, and subsequently drilling and operating the wells that recover and bring the crude oil and/or raw natural gas to the surface.
The midstream involves the transportation, storage and marketing of various oil and gas products. Transportation options can vary from small connector pipelines to massive cargo ships making trans-ocean crossings, depending on the commodity and distance covered.
The downstream sector, encompasses the refining, processing, distillation and purification before turning it into usable, sell-able and consumable products e.g. fuels, raw chemicals and finished products etc.
Other products are lubricants, synthetic rubber, plastics, fertilizers and pesticides. These products are called petrochemicals. The downstream sector has important role in the pharmaceutical, packaging and manufacturing industries.
Our wide variety of industry approved products, along with our experience, means our customers engaged in oil and gas projects have total faith in our services. We stock a range of products and specialise in the supply of total package solutions including actuation.
