Petroleum Technology: Science of Hydrocarbons

What responsibilities do an engineer in the field of petroleum engineering? 

what-is-petroleum-engineeringThe Petroleum Engineer handles exploration, production, storage and transportation of liquid and gaseous raw materials. Such as oil, gas or hot water to generate energy (geothermal).

The Senior Technical Petroleum Technology is prepared to supervise operations and equipment installations for exploitation, drilling, refining.  Also for transportation, production, distribution, storage, transportation and marketing of oil and its derivatives. The tasks involved in the installation and operation of equipment for the industry, complying with relevant safety standards. Manages and controls the preventive maintenance programs, treatment, repair and service well.

As a drilling engineer in the planning and execution of demanding deep drilling projects.

In the field of storage technology. Here measurements and tests are planned and recommendations are made for the exploitation of a deposit are worked out and optimized using computer simulations. As an oil and Natural Gas Engineer, operation of oil and gas fields on land (onshore) or on offshore production platforms are very important.

Raffinerie bei NachtIn the field of pipeline construction that are many important operations that take place in order to transport liquid or gaseous raw materials from the production site to refineries or from here to the consumer. As an expert or specialist in the planning and operation of geothermal energy projects, the hot water from turbines is used to drive turbines for electricity generation. You will see this on cruise lines in their boiler room.

As a developer of new tools and technologies at one of the manufacturers of special equipment and oil field equipment.

What are the requirements for an oil and natural gas engineer?

peAs a rule,you’ll typically need to complete a degree at an university degree in Petroleum Engineering. It is offered by the Universities in many countries, as well as courses at the universities of mining as well as at some select universities in geothermal energy. Prerequisites are, thus, the university entrance qualification. Flexibility, the willingness to take responsibility as well as the international and travel activities. And also the ability to be a team player in the international sphere, language skills and a dash of adventure are help for a career in petroleum engineering.

utviklingskonsesjon-havmerd-salmar-jpgThe demand for energy, whether from hydrocarbons, such as oil and natural gas, and also from alternative sources of energy such as deep geothermal energy. It is constantly increasing. The supplies of hydrocarbons extend far beyond the new century. The deep geothermal energy serves as an alternative energy source in many countries.

Architecture and Technology Gas Engineering:

Gas Engineers, have the abilities and skills to allow you to operate plants and facilities for the treatment and processing of natural gas, alcohol and industrial processes carried out on plants and gas facilities quite easily.

The also conduct research aimed at studying and creating technologies for the processing of natural gas. This ensures the implementation of laws and regulations of comprehensive protection in plants, facilities, equipment and people working in the processing of natural gas.
