Our experience

With our vast experience in oil market research and gas market research, B2B International can help fuel your insight into the oil, gas and energy sectors. The industry is made up of huge global suppliers and we have worked with most of them, ensuring they are successful in meeting the needs of their customers who buy fuel for their businesses.

We also research the market for the equipment that helps these companies extract natural resources, with our studies in these verticals including coal extraction, aviation fuel, solar energy, natural gas and drilling lubricants, to name but a few.


Over the years, we have built up an enviable client list of key decision makers across the oil and gas industry. We also regularly interview people on oil rigs, supertankers, and managers of mines, as well as the multitude of businesses that consume diesel or energy (gas and electricity) daily.

Case study: Seeing the future of energy in China
