Gas Quizzes & Trivia

Test your knowledge of the major stages of the oil and gas industry operations. Integrated oil and gas companies often incorporate upstream, midstream, and downstream activities within the same company. Upstream activities include locating, testing and drilling for oil and gas. Later, once reserves are proven, upstream firms will extract any oil and gas from the reserve. Midstream activities transportation, gas gathering, gas processing, storage, and distribution. Downstream operations cover further processing of crude oil, including refining, by-product distribution, and retail. They can also include petrochemicals,gasoline, natural gas liquids, diesel and a variety of other energy sources. Questions &am
