It is an industry that is involved in the exploration, removal, production and distribution of oil to make fuel oil, gasoline and chemical products. The biggest producing companies are Saudi Aramco at 12.5 million barrels a day, Russia's Gazprom at 9.7 million barrels, and Iran's National Iranian Oil Co at 6.4 million.
