I am concerned about living in a sort of remote location

Hi! My name is Keodara. I'm currently studying Chemical Engineering. I love all of the opportunities that ChemE offers. I am just concerned about living in a sort of remote location, because I want to work in the oil and gas industry. Are there any other hot cities for the oil and gas industry besides Houston, TX? Also, what was your motivation to earn a PhD in Electrical Engineering? Thanks!
