The top dog of engineers. The big dick bandit. Is a master of science and math, specializes in drilling, reservoir and completion of oil wells. Girls get wet at the site of a Petro Engineer. A good Petro Engg doesn't need a lab to determine the composition of a crude oil, he merely smells the sample and gives raw data without breaking a mental sweat. The Petro Engg is often the highest paid engineering major and as a result has many nice material objects. Having a degree doesn't give you instant access to becoming a Petroleum Engineer, some other requirements need to be met first such as having a diesel pickup and chewing tabacoo
Did you see that guy slaying dragons by that oil well? Yeh, I think he is a Petroleum Engineer you can tell by the diesler he is driving and the massive dip in his mouth.

BP for short. They are the English company responsible for the 2010 Gulf of Mexico disaster resulting in the worst oil spill in history.
British Petroleum will never be able to tell us how many millions of gallons (or barrels) of crude oil have spilled and poisoned the Gulf waters which will ultimately have negative long-term affects for many years and generations to come.
