Aerospace Industry


The oil and gas industry includes the processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transportation (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing of petroleum products. The largest volume products in the industry are fuel oil and gasoline. The industry is divided into three major components: upstream (exploration/extraction of crude oil), midstream (storage, transportation of crude), and downstream (refining crude oil into end products).


We have decades of experience and a record of successful cleanup operations performed with industry leaders starting with the Exxon Valdez oil spill back in 1989. Simple Green continues to be involved in efforts to mitigate the environmental impact from oil spills, and supports routine oil and gas operations, ongoing maintenance, and cleanup efforts.

We work with oil and gas industry customers to create tailor made solutions and products that meet and exceed performance standards by providing safer alternatives to harsh chemical cleaners, solvents, or high-alkaline degreasers. Simple Green delivers extraordinary performance, while helping to ensure the safety of worker's involved in the cleaning process, even in confined space cleanup situations. We can help you maximize your productivity, while minimizing stock management costs, worker risk, and waste disposal costs.

Simple Green will help you understand the true cost of your overall cleaning operation. We'll also demonstrate how by implementing small changes, you can enjoy potential savings that can ultimately lower your overall operating costs.
