Report Description:

The petroleum industry is usually divided into three {3} major components, upstream, midstream and downstream. Midstream operations are usually included in the downstream category.

The downstream oil sector is a term commonly used to refer to the refining of crude oil and the selling and distribution of natural gas and products derived from crude oil. It cuts across manufacturing, marketing, sales, distribution, transportation and haulage.

In Nigeria, the recent removal of fuel subsidy and the passage of the local content law by the federal government in the oil and gas industry is a wake-up call to Nigerians. The law ensures that contracts hitherto given to foreign firms are now given to capable Nigerian firms.
