The oil and gas industry is usually divided into three major sectors: upstream, midstream and downstream. The downstream sector commonly refers to 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 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as well as hundreds of petrochemicals.

dbo:abstract
  • The oil and gas industry is usually divided into three major sectors: upstream, midstream and downstream. The downstream sector commonly refers to 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 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as well as hundreds of petrochemicals. Midstream operations are often included in the downstream category and considered to be a part of the downstream sector. (en)
  • La industria petrolera se encuentra dividida en tres grandes sectores: upstream, midstream y downstream. El sector downstream se refiere comúnmente a las tareas de refinamiento del petróleo crudo y al procesamiento y purificación del gas natural, así como también la comercialización y distribución de productos derivados del petróleo crudo y gas natural. El sector downstream llega hasta los consumidores con productos tales como gasolina, querosén, combustibles aeronáuticos, diésel, fueloil, lubricantes, ceras, asfalto, gas natural, y gas licuado del petróleo así como también cientos de petroquímicos. Las operaciones midstream son consideradas generalmente como parte del sector downstream. (es)
