Petroleum engineers go to all over the places on Earth where petroleum reservoirs are known to exist. They define and develop the reservoirs, and produce oil and gas with maximum profitable recovery. Petroleum engineering isn’t just one job but it also allows one to specialize in several different specialties, each with its own unique challenges and rewards.
