As a petroleum officer, you will be dealing with refined petroleum products such as jet fuel, gasoline, diesel fuel,
burner oil, and lubricating oil. You will have little reason to concern yourself with the problems involved in
finding, producing, and refining crude oil into the numerous products you will be managing; however, it is
important for you to realize that the petroleum product is the end result of a long, involved process. For this
reason, it is appropriate that you examine the exploration and production phases of the oil industry.
