Hydrocarbon Processing Industry & Fossil Fuels

The industry is broadly comprised of three segments: Upstream, in which oil and natural gas is explored for and produced, Midstream, in which the raw materials are transported to refineries, and Downstream, in which the raw products are turned into value-added end-user products such as fuels, plastics, and petrochemicals. Analysis of chemistry and physical properties is essential throughout, from exploration and drilling to refining and delivery of finished products.
