Petroleum engineers search the world for reservoirs containing oil or natural gas. Once these resources are discovered , they work in association with geologists and other specialists to understand the geologic formation and properties of the rock containing the reservoir , determine the drilling methods to be used and monitor drilling and production operations. They design equipment and processes to achieve the maximum profitable recovery of oil and gas. There are excellent global opportunities for petroleum engineers , as it is very much a global business. All are global citizens in this industry. One surely needs to have good interpersonal skills to do well in this lucrative profession as almost all job roles in this field requires excellent team spirit. They are required to have ability to communicate effectively and work efficiently with other people. They should be able to work as part of team and to communicate well both verbally and in writing

Hi,


Greetig's for the day!!!

Despite the fact that petroleum engineering is an attractive and high paying career option, not much information is available on it. Typically, a petroleum engineering graduate is given the job to discover natural sources of oil and examine the same. Similarly, developing the latest machines and equipments which can be used in the extraction and processing of oil is part of the job of a petroleum engineer. Petroleum engineers have global career and are hired by global oil companies.

The Petroleum engineering is divided into 2 parts:
1. Upstream Sector:
Consists of activities like exploration, production and exploitation of oil and natural gases. After gaining a qualification in petroleum engineering, the engineers work in the exploration and production activities of petroleum and other related products. Using the latest drilling technology and geophysics for the exploration of oil reservoirs, theye xploit the same for maximum output.

2. Downstream Sector:
Consist activities such as the refining, marketing and distrbuting of petroleum products. Production is not the only work carried out in a petroleum company and the job of petroleum engineer does not get over as oil is produced, rather, it starts at this stage. Refining process is crucial for an oil product as then only it can be used. Marketing and distrbuting department may require a petroleum engineer to have some management degree.


Required Aptitude or Skills:
An international career is much attractive and young engineers willing to explore can work in global oil companies and get international exposure; however, here are few things which can help in building a successful career:

1. Excellent academic record in BTech in Petroleum Engineering is a must
2. Technical exposure during various projects carried out during the course shows that the candidate can work effectively when exposed to real scenarios.
3. Excellent numerical and computer skills are expected from petroleum engineers as most of the time there would be computer simulation required for further analysis.
4. Skills to plan out project and execute them with team spirit are further requirements.

Sound comunication skills in English and Interperonal skills would enhance the chances of getting international exposure and higher position within the organization.


Job Prospects:
Career prospects are quite attractive in petroleum sector as petroleum companies have great influence and offer attractive salaries to employees. The demand for petroleum and petroleum products is only expected to increase and the increase would lead to creation of new jobs. In fact, there is a great demand of efficient petroleum engineers and almost every young graduate in petroleum engineering gets a job offer from petrol and gas companies from India and Overseas.
