This industry is directly involved in the production, distribution and sale of energy, including fuel extraction, manufacturing, refining and distribution. Today’s society consumes large amounts of fuel and the energy industry is a crucial part of the infrastructure and maintenance of society in almost all countries.

Oil & Gas Refineries
Companies in the Refinery Industry transform the “Raw” material into products of value. The Oil Refinery industry converts crude oil into high-octane motor fuel (gasoline/petrol), diesel oil, liquefied petroleum gases (LPG), jet aircraft fuel, kerosene, heating fuel oils, lubricating oils, asphalt and petroleum coke and others; while the Gas Refinery industry “purify” separate from the “Raw” material (depending on the source) various non-methane hydrocarbons and fluids into pipeline gas.

Aerospace & Aviation
In most industrial countries, the aerospace industry is a cooperation of public and private industries although the Aviation Industry is mostly private but is regulated by the public sector. Aerospace is a very diverse field, with a multitude of commercial, industrial and military applications (Defense Industry). Several countries have a civilian space program funded by the government through tax collection, such as NASA in the United States, ESA in Europe, the Canadian Space Agency in Canada, Indian Space Research Organization in India, JAXA in Japan, RKA in Russia, China National Space Administration in China, SUPARCO in Pakistan, Iranian Space Agency in Iran, and Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) in South Korea. Along with these public space programs, many companies produce technical tools and components such as spaceships and satellites. Aviation is the design, development, production, operation, and use of aircraft, especially heavier-than-air aircraft. Aviation is derived from avis, the Latin word for bird.
