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 a job todiscover 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 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 2 parts:
1. Upstream Sector:
Consists of activities like exploration, production ad exlpoitation 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 geophyiscs for exploration of oil reservoirs , they exploit the same for maximum output.

2. Downstream Sector:
consists activities such as the refining, marketing and distribution of petroleum products. Production is not the only work carrried 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.

The demand for petroleum and petroleum products is only expected to increase and the increase would lead to creation on 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.

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