Similarly, developing the latest machines and equipments which can be used in the extraction and processing of oil is a part of job of a petroleum engineer. Petroleum Engineers have global career and are hired by global oil companies.

2. Downstream Sector:
Consist activities such as refining,, marketing and distributing of petroleum products.
