Our Worthington business customers ask us all the time about how oil and gas is converted to motor oil, gasoline, and lubricants. Below, we’ll take a brief look at the process.



The upstream segment of the oil and gas industry is those involved in the exploration and production of oil and gas. These are the people and the companies (commonly known as E&P, or exploration and production) that utilize technology to find the most likely pockets of oil in order to extract them from beneath the earth. There is a lot of cost and risk involved in the upstream process of oil and gas exploration because drilling is expensive, and if you drill and hit nothing, you’ve wasted all that time, effort and money.


Midstream businesses are those individuals and companies involved in the transportation of oil and gas to oil refineries for further processing. These are also pipeline companies that construct oil and gas pipelines.


Downstream companies are the oil refineries themselves. Here is where impurities in the oil and gas are removed and they are then converted into usable petroleum products for the general public. These oil and gas products include gasoline, fuel for airplanes, asphalt, and so much more.
