What does midstream and downstream in oil & gas mean?

The midstream phase involves shipping and storing the oil, and the downstream phase involves refining and distributing the processed oil-based products.

Midstream Oil & Gas 

The midstream sector involves the transportation (by pipeline, rail, barge, oil tanker or truck), storage, and wholesale marketing of crude or refined petroleum products.

Pipelines are generally used to transport crude oil and the various refined products to downstream distributors. Natural gas pipeline networks aggregate gas from natural gas purification plants and deliver it to downstream customers, such as local utilities.

Downstream Oil & Gas 

The downstream oil & gas sector refers to the processing, transporting and selling refined products made from crude oil; and the processing and purifying of raw natural gas. It also includes the marketing and distribution of products derived from crude oil and natural gas.

The downstream sector reaches consumers through products such as gasoline or petrol, kerosene, jet fuel, diesel oil, heating oil, fuel oils, lubricants, waxes, asphalt, natural gas, and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as well as hundreds of petrochemicals.

Midstream operations are often included in the downstream category and are considered to be a part of the downstream sector.

Key downstream oil & gas business sectors include:
  • Oil Refining
  • Supply & Trading
  • Product Marketing and Retail

Ish works with many Oil & Gas companies across Africa, including:

  • Fully integrated Oil & Gas Companies
  • Midstream Oil & Gas Companies

  • Lead Rotating Equipment Engineer
