Focusing on the Upstream Sector of the Oil & Gas Industry

The oil and gas industry may seem like a cut and dry operation: Dig the well, extract the oil, barrel it up, sell it out, reap the monetary benefits. But when you really break down the process from start to finish, there is so much involved with not just the people responsible, but also with the products used throughout the entire process.

To easily divvy up those processes, there are three different sectors within the oil and gas industry: upstream, midstream, and downstream.

The upstream sector, also known as the exploration and production sector, is probably the most important of these simply because without it, it would be extremely difficult to locate parts of the Earth holding the oil we use on a daily basis.

This sector focuses on the equipment used and procedures done for a team to extract oil. Without this sector, one might say it would be near impossible to work with the same efficiency the oil and gas industry does today.

Located in the heart of Acadiana, just outside of Lafayette, LA, businesses like Electric Line Technologies (ElTech) focus on the upstream sector of the industry and produce wireline tools such as weight bars, e-line swivels, and centralizers. 

While keeping an inventory of standard tools and accessories, ElTech also has fully custom tool manufacturing capabilities to provide these wireline tools in a variety of ways.

Having the right tools to do the job during the beginning of oil exploration is essential. Let’s face it, to be a competitor in the oil and gas industry, money will be made, but it will also be spent during all exploration. Make sure the upstream sector of your business is taken care of with not only high-quality wireline tools, but also at a reasonable price.
