English term or phrase:upstream portion of an oil company
Think, for example, of the key wealth creator in your business. In an investment banking firm, that would probably be an investment banker. In a software company, it could be a systems architect. In the ***upstream portion of an oil company***, it's probably the petroleum geologists who search the world for oil.
