διύλιση, διανομή και εμπορία πετρελαιοειδών

Εαν το κείμενο αναφέρεται συγκεκριμένα σε εταιρία πετρελαιοειδών, τότε η σημασία είναι πολύ πιο εξειδικευμένη:

The downstream oil sector is a term commonly used to refer to the refining of crude oil, and the selling and distribution of natural gas and products derived from crude oil. Such products include liquified petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline or petrol, jet fuel, diesel oil, other fuel oils, asphalt and petroleum coke.

Major sectors of the oil industry
The oil industry is often divided into three major sectors: upstream, midstream and downstream. However, midstream operations are usually simply included in the downstream category.

Upstream sector
The upstream sector includes the searching for potential underground or underwater oil and gas fields, drilling of exploratory wells, and subsequently operating the wells that recover and bring the crude oil and/or raw natural gas to the surface. The upstream sector is also known as the exploration and production (E&P) sector.

Midstream sector
The midstream sector processes, stores, markets and transports commodities such as crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs)[1] such as ethane, propane and butane.

Downstream sector
The downstream sector includes oil refineries[2], petrochemical plants, petroleum product distribution, retail outlets and natural gas distribution companies. The downstream industry touches consumers through thousands of products such as gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, heating oil, asphalt, lubricants, synthetic rubber, plastics, fertilizers, antifreeze, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, natural gas and propane.

Business. Closer to the point of sale than to the point of production or manufacture.

Financial & Investment Dictionary: Downstream
Flow of corporate activity from parent to subsidiary. Financially, it usually refers to loans, since dividends and interest generally flow upstream. Term is also used by securities analysts, particularly oil analysts, meaning earnings or operations at or near the end-product stage. In an integrated oil company, for example, downstream would refer to the retail gas pump, upstream to exploration.
