English term or phrase: Upstream and downstream operations
This concerns the oil industry and Ernst, Wörterbuch der industriellen Technik, says "zur Raffinerie" und "von der Raffinerie". I just wondered if there is some cool term for this in German.

Thanks,

Antje

Explanation:
vorgelagert and nachgelagert are alternatives found in Werner which I find particularly appropriate.

Hi,

thanks for your help. I'm still unsure about this and may just keep the English.
It's in these days to have English terms in German press releases.

I really appreciate your effort,

Antje

Explanation:
I don't know how cool these terms are, but they might sound a little more professional, depending on the context and actual sentence.
