Watch the video below to quickly go through the typical day of a Petroleum Engineer:




In general, the petroleum engineers get involved in the following activities in their day to day lives:

  • Working with the team to plan and decide the activities to be followed in the project and also schedule the tasks accordingly.
  • Analyzing the data to suggest where the machinery and wells could be placed, expecting the maximum outputs.
  • Work on the processes and design workflow for them.
  • Collecting samples of oil and petroleum products and conduct experiments on them to understand the science behind.
  • Work on the safety and maintenance of the equipments and machines.
  • They have to split their time among labs, office and drilling sites and therefore have to travel throughout the day. The travel often involves going to the remote locations where drilling sites are located.
