Hi

There are top notch companies in India and overseas hiring Petroleum engineers.
You cab start applying to the companies directly or through the various job portals sites. Upload your well made CV to the job portal and if the employers find you suitable they will contact you directly. On other hand leave your CV to the companies directly. Keep a note of walkin interviews happening in and around you. Check newspapers and websites.

Keep yourself ready to face the interview and GD's.

Understand the job roles of a petroleum engineer.

  • Petroleum geologists find hydrocarbons by analyzing subsurface structures with geological and geophysical methods;
  • Reservoir engineers work to optimize production of oil and gas via proper well placement, production levels, and enhanced oil recovery techniques;
  • Production engineers manage the interface between the reservoir and the well through such tasks as (but not limited to) perforations, sand control, artificial lift, down hole flow control and down hole monitoring equipment. They also select surface equipment that separates the produced fluids (oil, natural gas and water);
  • Drilling engineers manage the technical aspects of drilling both production and injection wells. They work in multidisciplinary teams alongside other engineers, scientists, drilling teams and contractors.


Some of the top companies are:-

- Indian Oil Corporation
- IBP Co. Limited
- Lubricants India
- Oil Gas India
- Petrosil Group
- Shiv-Vani Universal
- ONGC

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 the natural sources of oil and examing the same. Similarly, developing the latest machines and equipments which can be used in the extraction and processing of oil is a part of job of a petroleum engineer. Petroleum engineers have global career and are hired by global oil companies.

The Petroleum engineering is divided into two parts:
1. Upstream Sector
2. Downstream Sector

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

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 effiecient petroleum engineers and almost every young graduate in petroleum engineering gets a job offer from petrol and gas companies from India and Overseas.

Whereas private petroleum companies offer attarctive salaries to petroleum engineers, government sector oil companies are not far behind in term of paying attarctive salaries and bonuses to employees.
