About This Career
You have an over-arching knowledge of how the industry works and the ability to promote collaboration.

To do this, you work closely with logistics, engineering, field operations, land management, accounting, auditing, marketing and legal counsel.
Joint Venture Representatives develop, negotiate and monitor the execution of formal agreements for operated and non-operated joint ventures. Joint ventures are partnerships where two or more companies work together. Petroleum companies form joint ventures for many reasons.
