Pictogramme The sector of Oil and Gas Management and Trade

The oil and gas industries are the driving forces for some of the biggest and wealthiest economies in the world. Going into the management and trade of oil and gas can put potential students and workers in sectors like trade, risk management, engineering, and finance. There are also three different sectors of the oil and gas industry: upstream, midstream, and downstream. Upstream has to do with the exploration and production of oil and natural gas. The midstream sector is where the oil and gas is gathered, processed, refined, stored, and transported. Finally, downstream is where the oil is refined, and the natural gas is processed and purified for consumer products.

After months of low oil prices, the sector has largely rebounded, and prices are continuing to rise again. However productivity of oil and natural gas is becoming less abundant than ever, and it is struggling to keep up with demand. Volatility in the market will start occurring more often due to the supply constraints. Portfolios have to be resilient, the sector needs to be more innovative, and productivity and capital efficiency must remain the foundation of operational procedures as an increase in problems regarding supply begin to pile up.
