Breaking into Oil&Gas

I have a question for you monkeys

I would like to work in O&G hedge funds, trading or at least transactions (ie M&A).
My dream is to work in Dallas or Houston but due to my nationality guess could be hard, so London/Paris/Frankfurt or Milan are fine as well.

Actually I'm working as FP&A intern in a F500, with trading experience for business schools associations and projects.

Given my interest, I got an admit from a target bschool in the UK for the energy and finance program.
How hard is to break in the industry?
If I'll realize that i am suited more for global markets instead of O&G I will have opportunities as well?A sort of hedge that allows me to lateral into equities or something else.
And how hard is to come from the EU in Texas or the US?

Btw I read that O&G's future is not as shine as nat res is... is that true?
