The Oil & Gas Industry

The Oil & Gas Industry is divided into three major sectors, Exploration,Upstream and Downstream. However, Exploration operations are usually simply included in the Upstream category. The Upstream sector includes the searching for potential underground or underwater oil and gas fields, drilling of exploratory wells, and subsequently operating the wells that recover and bring crude oil and/or raw natural gas to the surface. Commodities such as crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids are stored, marketed and transported before they are treated and converted into the final products. The Downstream sector includes oil refineries, petrochemical plants, petroleum product distribution, retail outlets and natural gas distribution.The Downstream industry serves consumers with thousands of products such as gasoline,diesel,jet fuel, heating oil, asphalt, lubricants, rubber, plastic and many more.Screw Pumps are globally used in the Oil & Gas Industry for handling crude oil, emulsions, produced water, multiphase fluids with high gas contents as well as intermediate and final liquid products. Based on the worldwide largest product range of Twin, Triple and even Five Screw Pumps, Leistritz is serving the Oil &Gas Industry Upstream and Downstream.
