Downstream

In the oil and gas industry, "downstream" refers to the activities involved in the refining, marketing, and distribution of oil and natural gas products. Downstream equipment refers to the various types of equipment and machinery used in these activities. This can include:

  • Refining equipment: This includes equipment used to convert crude oil into various products, such as gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel. Examples of refining equipment include distillation towers, catalytic crackers, and hydrotreaters.
  • Distribution equipment: This includes equipment used to transport oil and natural gas products to end-users, such as pipelines, tankers, filling and dispensing pumps, storage tanks, transport trucks, and railcars.
  • Lubricant blending equipment: This includes equipment used to blend lubricant base stocks and additives to produce lubricants like motor oil and gear oil.
  • Petrochemical equipment: This includes equipment used to produce petrochemical products, such as plastics and fertilizers, from natural gas and oil.
  • Research and development equipment: This includes equipment used to conduct research and development to improve the quality of products, and to develop new products.

Downstream equipment is designed to handle large volumes of oil and natural gas products and must be able to operate safely and efficiently over long periods of time. The cost of downstream equipment can be high, but they are essential for the successful refining, marketing, and distribution of oil and gas products.
