"There are also many new and exciting specialty areas arising in chemicals, material science, and nanoscience and nanotechnology, all of which is meaningful to exploration, production, water purification, fracturing for shale oil and gas, and liquids. These new specialty areas are very relevant to companies today," Peña told the news source.

The renewable energy sector is experiencing growth as well. A recent study from the Atlantic Wind Connection revealed that a proposed wind energy project along the coast would create as many as 70,000 jobs, The Associated Press reported.
