Petroleum engineers locate, recover, and maintain the world’s oil and gas supplies. They are the innovators who use cutting-edge technology to create new methods of discovering and drilling for oil. Although there are various job descriptions, petroleum engineers all serve one function—to provide the world with energy, while safeguarding the environment for future generations.
Most careers involve a combination of office-based and advanced, computer-oriented technology work. Plus, petroleum engineers typically have numerous opportunities to travel across the globe, supervising drilling projects.
Petroleum engineers will always have job security, as the demand for new energy processes and resources continues to increase. And with many current engineers approaching retirement, the job market will only grow. As many as 38% more petroleum engineers are needed to find the energy the world requires now and in the future. Starting salaries for engineering school graduates are among the highest of any field. Entry-level petroleum engineers often receive lucrative job offers and signing bonuses.

Energy is a fundamental aspect of the universe. Petroleum powers machinery and technology that warms and cools homes, cooks food, and provides entertainment. More than 80% of oil is used to create gasoline, diesel, maritime, and aviation fuel for transportation. In addition, oil serves as a raw material for the production of plastics, rubber, nylon, spandex, detergents, pharmaceutical drugs, clothing, cosmetics, perfumes, paints, bubble gum, and more.
What’s the future of oil?
The demand for safe, affordable, and clean energy throughout the world is growing dramatically. Currently, about 86 million barrels of oil are used per day—40,000 gallons every second. And it is projected that there will be a 50-60% growth in demand for energy worldwide in the next 25 years. Oil will be the predominant fuel for the foreseeable future.
Advanced technologies are finding new oil and gas deposits and recovering more resources from existing wells. And oil and gas companies are major investors in alternative energy sources. The world will always need energy. Petroleum engineers must answer the call to find innovative technologies and new resources to meet the increasing demands for energy. Petroleum engineers will lead the way into the future and will have the opportunity to truly make a difference. This is an exciting and unique time to join the industry.
*The tale 0f you and I*
you gave walking sticks to others
yet you yourself were limping
you offered a lending hand
but it was you who needed help
you wore shields and armours
but it wasnt the outside that needed protection
you claimed others as foes and threats
yet you stabbed your very own heart
you blamed the time for being envious
was it not you who made the clock?
you walked the road with glitters and jewels
but back in home you slept on dirt
you conquered the lands and the oceans and skies
yet you moaned and screamed in dreams
you were the king of glorious men
but you were held captive of unseen strings
you claimed yourself a proud free man
yet you were chained to your old ventriloquist>
"By the power of Truth...."
