What is Petroleum Engineering?

  1. 1. Name: Bilal M. Taha Stage: First Stage -- Class A-- Subject: Academic Debate In the year: 2014-2015 1 UnderSupervison of Mr. HishyarBarwary
  2. 2. Objective of the Presentation  Who are Petroleum Engineers?  Types of Petroleum Engineering.  Preparation of Petroleum Engineering. 2
  3. 3.  Petroleum Engineers are those who study the earth to find oil and gas reservoirs. They design oil wells, storage tanks, and transportation systems. They supervise the construction and operation of oil and gas fields. Petroleum engineers with other scientists are researching new technologies to allow more oil and gas to be extracted from each well by a less dig cost . They help supply the world's need for energy and chemical raw materials. They design equipment and processes to achieve the maximum profitable recovery of oil and gas. 3
  4. 4. Drilling Engineer: Who specialize in drilling and work over operations. He is responsible for the design of the earth penetration techniques, the selection of casing and safety equipment and often direction of operation. They determine the best way to drill an oil or gas well and ensure that the drilling process is safe, efficient, and minimally disruptive to the environment. Drilling engineers will spend the first two to three years of their career in the field on drilling rigs. They work with the drilling managers to oversee the day-to-day operations of the rig. 4  Petroleum Engineers specialize into three major types of engineering
  5. 5. Production Engineers who specialize in studying wells characteristics, understanding well characteristics helps them maintain oil flow over period of time. His/her work involves controlling and measuring the produced fluid. They use various chemical and mechanical procedures to maximize oil recovery from the well 5
  6. 6. Reservoir Engineers who design an implement the plant development of an oil field. They definite size of an oil field by measuring it’s boundaries and it’s depth Study a reservoir’s characteristics and determine which methods will get the most oil or gas out of the reservoir. 6
  7. 7. A bachelor's degree in engineering is required for almost all entry-level engineering jobs. Admissions requirements for undergraduate engineering schools include a solid background in mathematics (algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and calculus) and science (biology, chemistry, and physics), and courses in English, social studies, humanities, and computer and information technology. Bachelor's degree programs in engineering typically are designed to 4 years. In a typical 4-year college curriculum, the first 2 years are spent studying mathematics, basic sciences, introductory engineering, humanities, and social sciences. Petroleum engineering students may also take courses such as Reservoir Petro physics, Petroleum Engineering Systems, and Physical Geology during these years. 7
  8. 8. In the last 2 years, a petroleum engineering program might include courses in Drilling and Production Systems, Geostatistics, Well Performance, Reservoir Fluids, Petroleum Project Evaluation, Engineering Ethics, and Well Completion and Stimulation. 8
  9. 9. Supervising and managing oil field is mission of PE . There are three major types of Petroleum Engineers: drilling, reservoir, production Engineers. They can work at oil companies after graduating and getting Bachelor degree in PE I wish you be perfect PE and help development and growth of kurdistan toward the best…….. 9
