Work value is a set values that include good performance,take initiative and working well with others.You can set your own work values and set goals to increase them as well.

Petroleum engineers design and develop methods for extracting oil and gas from deposits below the earth's surface.Petroleum engineers also find new ways to extract oil and gas from older wells.They typically do the following -

- Design equipment to extract oil and gas in the most profitable way.
- Develop ways to inject water chemicals,gases or steam into an oil reserve to force out more of the oil.
- Make sure that wells,well testing and well survey are completed and evaluated.
- Use computer-controlled drilling or fracturing to connect a larger area of an oil and gas deposit to a single well.
- Make sure that oil field equipment is installed,operated and maintained properly.
- Asses costs and estimate the production capabilities and economic value of oil and gas well to evaluate the economic viability of potential drilling sites.
- Develop plans for oil and gas field drilling and for product recovery and treatment.
- Analyze data.

There is so much to do for them.They work in the conditions they may be unpalatable for some.
They spend long stretches of time sitting in offices studying maps and data often by them selves.
Work in remote and inhospitable locations.
Frequent interaction with family and friends is not for them.
They work for 40-60 hrs/wk,spend long hours travelling to and fro from the sites.
- They have strong work values.
- They have strong dependability and responsibility.
- They always possess positive attitude.
- Their adaptability is very high.
- They have great value for honesty and integrity as the work they do ,demands from them.
- They have the ability to build an organization based on values.
