Oil Field and Drilling Chemicals

Overview Industry Overview:

The oil field and drilling industry is a multi-faceted one, typically divided into upstream, midstream, and downstream. Upstream works in exploration and production, and is composed primarily of drilling companies and oil field service companies. Midstream includes transporters and transport systems, and marketers of crude oil. Finally, downstream consists of refineries and commercial establishments.

This industry is one that is expected to make a comeback in the coming years. This field has always been closely tied to factors like global population growth, political conditions, and, most importantly, economic development. As the economy prospers, so does the demand for fuel (and vice versa). Despite shifts towards alternative sources, the products of this industry continue to account for the majority share of our country’s energy consumption. They are also utilized in many other industrial sectors, including plastic production.
