All About Petroleum Engineering

Petroleum Engineering involves in the development of new technology to recover oil and gas from gas field in an efficient and profitable way.'

'As the demand of petrol is immeasurable the Petroleum Engineering becomes the core industries. In 2016 the demand for gas will touch 124 MTPA with domestic supply of only 33 MTPA and imports of only 47.2 MTPA and leaves a shortage of 44 MTPA. Research should be done in the industry to increase the domestic supply of oil and gas.'

'Petroleum Engineering Students help locate natural reservoirs of petroleum deposits. Demand of such professionals are required in high range.

Petroleum Engineering trains and focuses on the exploration and production of oil and gas. The petroleum engineering in the future is developing new technologies in order to recover the oil left behind after the application of conventional methods of extraction.

Various measures are taken by the researchers to enhance hydrocarbon reserves and increase the production of oil and gas. Numerous graduates from the petroleum engineering discipline are required in the research of new technologies to increase domestic supply of oil and gas.

Petroleum Engineers secure an energy balance between environmental status and affordable supply and research of oil and gas. Petroleum engineers are in great demand so that the important issues will be solved that will lead to energy security.
