Utah is one of only a handful of states to be home to companies involved in all aspects of the petroleum industry. Utah's rich natural resources provide opportunities for exploration and production activities to find and produce oil and natural gas. Midstream companies gather, process and transport those resources. Utah is home to five petroleum refineries who convert crude oil into useful and necessary products we use every day. Petroleum marketers interact daily with the public in the distribution and retail marketing of gasoline and other fuels that drive our economy and lives.
