A career in petroleum industry demands effective use of brain and hand. Almost all jobs in this field requires excellent team spirit. They should have the ability to communicate effectively and workefficientlywith other people. They should be creative ,analytically, detail oriented andinquisitive.

To identify whether you have right interest and aptitude to be a petroleum engineer , you are advised to get your psychometric assessment done. The psychometric assessment involves assessing the aptitude, interest and personality of the student using standardized psychological tests. It takes approximately 75 minutes to 90 minutes to complete the assessment and can be given either online or paper-pen test.The assessment isthoroughlyanalyzed by psychologist and a unique career plan is generated for the student. The career plan mainly highlights the key interest, high and low aptitude areas , personality attributes, recommendation for subjects in class 11 and suitable career options after class of the student . The career counselling is carried out by the career expert to explain the careerplanto the student and hence assisting him in making an informed career decision. It is also observed that sometimes even after having the required aptitude, interest and personality attributes , student find it difficult to puruse a recommended careerbecauseof poor study skills etc. All these issues are also taken care of by the counsellor during counselling.

Hi,


Greeting'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, they exploit 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 a petroleum engineer does not get over as the 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 asuccessful career:

1. Excellent academic record in BTech in petroleum engineering is must.
2. Technical exposure during various projects carrried 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 communication skills in English language 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 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.


Further doubts or queries feel free to contact.
