ENERGY SECTOR

Overview of the Energy Sector

Types of Energy

The energy sector is a category of companies in the business related to the production and supply of energy. The energy sector consists of a large group of inter-related companies that cover a wide variety of energy. The two major types of energy are as follows:

Non Renewable Energy

It includes oil and petroleum products, gasoline, natural gas, diesel fuel, and nuclear.

Renewable Energy

The other one is renewable energy, such as hydropower, solar power, and wind power.

Types of Industries in the Energy Sector

 

Energy Equipment & Services Industry

The energy equipment & services industry comprises oil and gas drilling contractors, manufacturers of drilling equipment, and businesses that provide services related to drilling and completion of oil or gas wells.

Oil, Gas & Consumable Fuels Industry

Companies in the oil and gas industry can be categorized into the upstream, the midstream, and the downstream. They have different positions in the supply chain.

The upstream companies are involved in exploring potential crude oil and natural gas fields. They also exploit these energy resources through drilling and operating wells. Mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures happen in the upstream frequently.

The midstream provides storage, transportation, and wholesale marketing for oil, gas, and petroleum products. Transportation providers include pipeline transportation companies, barge companies, railroad companies, and other logistics companies.

The downstream is involved in post-production activities. The downstream companies refine crude oil and raw natural gas into consumable fuels, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, and jet fuel. They also distribute derived products such as waxes, lubricants, and many other petrochemicals. The midstream is often considered a part of the downstream.
