NAICS Code 211130 Natural Gas Extraction

Industry

Mining, Quarrying, and Oil and Gas Extraction

Description

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in (1) the exploration, development and/or the production of natural gas from wells in which the hydrocarbons will initially flow or can be produced using normal or enhanced drilling and extraction techniques or (2) the recovery of liquid hydrocarbons from oil and gas field gases. Establishments primarily engaged in sulfur recovery from natural gas are included in this industry.
