- In the last 10 years the face of the upstream oil and gas exploitation industry has changed from one that was dominated by a few (seven) super majors extracting hydrocarbons from gigantic reservoirs to a market that now has a large presence of small independents. In the UK sector the DTI estimates proven and probable reserves of over 4 billion barrels still to be exploited, some 150 mid and small sized independent companies are evaluating profitable hydrocarbon production from these smaller sized accumulations.
