Petrochemical Manufacturing


Companies in the petrochemical industry manage the operations and processes that transform crude oil and other raw materials into chemical products. There are two major categories of petrochemical companies:
  • companies that refine oil and other raw materials and convert them into basic chemicals such as ethylene; and
  • companies that use these basic chemicals to create materials that can then be used in other industries to produce finished products, such as plastics, detergents, paints, fertilizers, polyester, etc.
