I can only find two websites for each category. Would this be enough for you?

I do not need those websites like Alibaba, EZplaza, DIYtrade, B2B
trade that are NOT EXCLUSIVE for the oil industry. I need websites
that are exclusive
for the OIL industry like Petrofinder I mentioned. Is that what you found?

Same thing for the discussion group. It has to be exclusive for the oil industry.

Thanks for the answers and extra info. on gas/oil equipment.

On the discussion groups, do you find any groups that the discussion 
regarding trading of oil(when I say oil, it is not just crude oil, it includes
"oil" from refineries such as fuel oil, diesel, jet fuel oil, gas and heating
oil,etc.) I am particular interested in finding more information on discussion
group on fuel oil and trading of oil. The two groups on the answer
have a lot of infromation only on crude oil and the production of
such, not much on the trading side and IN other "oils".

Before proceeding on posting an answer, I have checked the
possibilities I know of where to find more communities that cater what
you want but alas, these are the only ones I could find. That is why I
clarified first before proceeding with an answer.

Thanks again.

Those are all worthless sites which perpetuate the massive fake oil
business. Do you really think you can take any of those postings
seriously? Complete novices in their underwear trading trillions of
dollars worth of oil on their home pc's? Not likely. Oil trading is
the for the few, not the many. It is basically a closed business. To
break in at your level would be harder than going to the moon.

Any oil offer you see on the Internet will be fake. That also applies
to Gold, Urea, Sugar, etc.

On your beloved Petrofinder someone's offering 50 million barrels a
month of so called Saudi Light Crude Oil or SLCO (no such crude oil
exists, by the way, this is a fake oil term. Tehe real disignation is
Arabian Light Crude Oil). Another "trader" is offering 60 million
barrels a month of so-called REBCO (another fake term; real
disignation is Urals). Do you understand how ridiculous and laughable
these offers are? These quantities represent nearly two weeks of each
country's total production. Moreover, none of the biggest oil
conglomerates in the word (Exxon-Mobile, Shell, BP)even come close to
buying that quantity from either country. In fact, all 3 combined
don't buy that much. Yet some unknown amatuer sitting in his apartment
is offering this oil. You get the picture now? I truly hope you do.
Some never get it, and they ruin themselves and their families chasing
this junk.

You will never, ever come across a real oil deal. Why would anyone
with a real deal need you? Who are you? You're not in the business and
you know nothing about the real business. And relying on sites like
Petrofinder will only deepen your knowledge of the fake business, not
the real business. Oh, and there is no money to be made in the fake
business. It's all a mirage. Occasionally the scammers make money,
that's it.
