Petroleum Engineering is a recent development in the field of technical education which is becoming very much popular among young masses. Petroleum engineers are involved in the exploration and production activities of petroleum products which is an upstream end of the energy sector. The study covers a wide range of topics, including economics, geology, geochemistry, geomechanics, geophysics, oil drilling, geopolitics, knowledge management, seismology, tectonics, thermodynamics, well logging, well completion, oil and gas production, reservoir development, and pipelines etc.
With the development of new technology, Petroleum engineering has become very much useful in the extraction process. Improvements in computer modeling, materials and the application of statistics, probability analysis, and new technologies like horizontal drilling and enhanced oil recovery, have also improved the toolbox of the petroleum engineer in recent decades.
There are few institutions in India, imparting B-Tech programs in Petroleum Engineering. At SLBS these courses are taught by professionals from petroleum industries including ISM, ONGC, IOC and also academicians and researchers from several global centers dealing with petroleum technology and research.
Petroleum Engineering being a advanced field of engineering offers print ful job opportunities for graduates.Freshers may find ample scope in Public undertaking as well as in Corporate sector that deal with Petroleum Exploration and Extraction.
A Petroleum engineer's work involves bringing oil or gas from the reservoir to the surface economically, safely and with minimum damage to the reservoir and facilities. Other activities include management of material resources and contractor relationships and also supervising drilling personnel. They work in multidisciplinary team alongside other engineers, scientists, drilling team and contractors.
The field is always in short supply of qualified entry level professionals. The world continues to demand safe, affordable energy sources and that will always make a degree in petroleum engineering a valuable investment. And the rewards for such a career are going to being long-term. There are many challenges in this field; however, petroleum engineers apply their technical skills and knowledge to solve these engineering challenges.
Apart from opting for professional career, one can also do research work for further development of the field. He/she may join research labs as scientists or research fellow to carry out the R&D processes.
