Oil and Gas is a pretty vast industry... are you looking for the distribution side (think how gas go from refinery to gas stations), the refining side (refining crude into different grades), or the "R&D" (drilling, exploring) side? I suggest you look into the companies you want to work for, and start doing research. Get yourself a LinkedIn account, and see who is already working at the company you want to get an internship, and start asking for informational interviews.
I cannot speak to the oil/gas industry, but the material handling industry is in a growth phase. These jobs typically require engineering or mathematics degrees and are highly compensated with travel from 40% to 100%. Typical companies include Dematic and Intelligrated.
