Drilling Engineers- Drilling engineers manage the technical aspects of drilling both production andinjectionwells. They work in multidisciplinary teams along with other engineers, scientists, drilling teams and contractors.
Petroleum Geologist- Petroleum geologists search for hydrocarbons by analyzing subsurface structures with geological and geophysical methods.
Reservoir Engineers- work to maximize production of oil and gas through proper well placement , production levels and enhanced oil recovery techniques. They use computer simulations to assist in the identification of risks and to make forecast on reservoir potential.
Production engineers- manage the interface between the reservoir and the well through tasks such as perforations, sand control, artificial lift , down hole flow control and monitoring equipment. They also select surface equipment that separates the produced fluids.

Their work usually involves searching the world of reservoirs containing oil and 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 rocks containing the reservoir, determine the drilling methods to be used and monitor drilling and production operations. They decide on appropriate engineering intervention, understand how a set of wells interact and design equipment and processes to achieve the maximum profitable recovery of oil and gas and

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. Similiarly, 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 in two parts:
1. Upstream Sector
2. Downstream Sector

1. Upstream Sector:
Consist of acitivities like exploration, production and exploatation 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 distributing 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 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 distributing department may require a petroleum engineer to have some management degrees.

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 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.

Job Roles/ Name:
Depending upon the qualifiaction, skills and experience, roles and designations differ in the field. Some of the positions offered are Reservoir Engineer, Technical Support Engineer, Senior, Geoscientist, Drill Bits System Field Engineer, Petroleum Technologist and Drilling Engineer. Other positions are Principal Reservoir Petro Physicist, Technical Support Specialist, Tender and Quotation Analyst, Geosciences Pressure Expert, Senior Petro Physicist, Senior Exploration Geologist, and Prcess Engineer.

Further doubts or queries feel free to contact.
