A Barrel Full Oil & Gas Wiki


  • The purpose of this Wiki is to build up a knowledge base of the sector so that I or anyone else can easily locate the information that they need. To this end, all contributions, comments and criticisms are welcome.


  • The most developed and comprehensive area of the site is the Oil Refineries section, which is my particular area of interest and expertise. It is by far and away the best freely available knowledge base about refining available on the web


Liquified Natural Gas, LNG


Sector Basics

There is also a Glossary of Upstream Terms and a A Glossary of Petroleum Refining Terms. An Introduction to Refining section, gives the basics of how refining works.

For those of you who want to know the difference between Brent & WTI, the Crude Oil Types page will be useful. There is also a section on Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources.

The section Engineering Construction and Services has details of relevant engineering, construction and oil services companies and their references

Under development

I am also starting to add a oil and gas company section, which will act as a directory and the basis for a search engine.

Also in the Works is an Investing in Oil and Gas section.
