About The Oil & Gas Industry:

The oil/petroleum industry globally entails exploring, extracting, refining, and marketing oil products. The primary function of the oil and gas industry is to supply gasoline and fuel to consumers as well as other products like plastics, pesticides, fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, and solvents. The industry is divided into three main categories: upstream, midstream, and downstream.

Oil is one of the most relied upon resources in the world. Many countries and their economies are reliant on oil to supply their energy. While Europe and Asia only rely on oil for 32% of their energy, the Middle East relies on over half of their energy from the oil and gas industry.
