The upstream oil sector is a term commonly used to refer to the searching for and the recovery and production of crude oil and petroleum natural gas. The upstream oil sector is also known as the exploration and production (E&P) sector. 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 the crude oil and/or raw natural gas to the surface.

Midstream (oil industry)

However, midstream operations are usually simply included in the downstream category The midstream sector processes, stores, markets and transports commodities such as crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (NLG) such as ethane, propane and butane.

The process of oil production, transportation, refinery and sale is managed by oil companies (producers). But there are also service companies that work as contractors to the oil companies. These are deeply involved in the oil business providing services that help oil companies to carry out their operations.
