Refining Oil
THE ADVENTURE
CONTINUES!
The story doesn’t end once crude oil is found
and produced from a well. More hard work is
needed in order to get the crude oil to the
marketplace and to turn it into products
that can be used easily by consumers.
SO WHAT HAPPENS
AFTER WE FIND OIL?
Once oil starts flowing, it needs to be extracted
in large volumes and then taken to special sites
where it is treated carefully before being
transported internationally.

downstream sector
is the part of the
oil industry involved with purifying crude oil and
refining it into different products. It also
involves the transportation and marketing of
crude oil and its products.
