Petroleum engineers specialize in the study and exploration of natural reservoirs and petroleum deposits found deep inside the earth. Petroleum engineers have to locate oil reservoirs and once located, engineers study and examine the geological formation, nature of rock containing the reservoir with the help of geologists to plan the drilling method required for extraction. Designing and developing effective and cost-efficient technology to extract these petroleum resources is one of the elemental parts of the job of petroleum engineers. Also, they monitor the drilling process and ensure that the resources are extracted safely and stored properly.
EASA equips its students not only in the analysis of exploration data and simulation of reservoir behaviour but also in the automation of oilfield production and drilling operations. A future full of challenges and opportunities awaits petroleum engineers. They must develop and implement new technology to recover hydrocarbons from oil shale, offshore oil and gas fields. They should also devise new techniques to recover oil left in the ground after the application of conventional producing techniques. Many petroleum companies conduct worldwide operations, therefore petroleum engineers have the opportunity for assignments around the world. We help Petroleum engineers to solve a variety of political, economical, technological problems encountered in these assignments.
The Department of Petroleum Engineering creates outstanding engineers - with advanced teaching techniques and learning aids for undergraduate students. Students are not only made specialists in technical aspects but also in interpersonal skills, a vital element to excelling in the fast-paced world.
We provide our students with the knowledge in
Introduction to Petroleum Engineering
