The Oil & Gas sector is one of the largest and focused industry worldwide. There are a huge number of logistics and phases which must be undertaken for potential Oil & Gas sites to be located, then pumped, shipped, processed, and sold. Since this is such a long process and there are so many different companies and smaller industries that rely on different parts of the process, it is very common for the Oil & Gas industry to be classified into three sectors: Upstream, Midstream and Downstream.
The Upstream sector involves the initial discovery and extracting of Oil & Gas. It includes searching for potential underground or underwater crude oil and natural gas fields, drilling exploratory wells, and subsequently drilling and operating the wells that recover and bring the crude oil and/or raw natural gas to the surface. There has been a significant shift toward including unconventional gas as a part of the upstream sector, and corresponding developments in liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing and transport. Transformers play a key role in powering Oil & Gas extraction process and needs a dependable and reliable equipment to maximize up times. Virginia Transformer has played a key role in satisfying these requirements at several Oil & Gas fields and are on the approved list of all the Oil & Gas giants.
