Upstream

The upstream energy sector involves exploration and production of oil and gas, including underwater or underground crude oil, natural gas fields and drilling wells. Professionals in this sector include geologists and geophysicists, who determine where resources can be found; petroleum engineers, who work with geoscientists to understand geologic formations, and mechanical engineers, who optimize physics and materials science to design, examine and manufacture mechanical systems.
