Hi,

Petroleum industry is one of the most growing industry in today's world.So scope is world wide.It hardly makes any difference from where you get the degree.The colleges are every where ,be it India or abroad.

Petroleum engineering job's have a bright future.They are providing exciting careers.Petroleum employment will grow as oil and gas projects accelerate world wide.

Global companies pay more than Indian companies.This is the only difference.More than India, MNC's from overseas who hire Indian Petroleum engineers for their various projects.

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 a successful career.

Excellent academic record in BTch in Petroleum engineering is a must.

Technical exposure during various projects carried out during the course shows that the candidate can work effectively when exposed to real scenarios.

Excellent numerical and computer skills are expected from petroleum engineers as most of the time there would be computer stimulation required for further analysis.

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 with in the organization.

Those who have done masters or research in petroleum engineering can work in research activities of various multi national oil companies in various R & D projects.

Besides getting jobs in Indian petroleum companies,candidates with qualification in petroleum engineering get jobs in Reliance Industries ltd,ONGC, Schlumberger, British gas, Halliburton services, ESSAR oil, GSPC, Shell, OIL,Gas Authority of India ltd, Cairn Energy,IOCL, Niko Resource, GEOENPRO, MECOM ltd, Baker Hugher, Reliance energy,etc amongst many others.

Hope i have given you enough information regarding the subject. Wish you success in your field.

ALL THE BEST!!!

Similarly, developing the latest machines and equipments which can be used in the exraction 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 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 distrbutng department may require a petroleum engineer to have some management degree.
