Petroleum Engineering refers to the process of designing and putting into place effective processes and techniques to obtain petroleum products from the earth or the sea. Petroleum engineers are highly skilled and work alongside some other land experts including geologists to manage the extraction.
It is impossible to see what is happening so far underground so a large amount of a petroleum engineer's work is spent researching dig sites and estimating the best methods and equipment to use and indeed whether the cost to extract at all will be of benefit to their company.
Some of the tasks a petroleum engineer will be required to carry out are as follows:
Establish the best drilling apparatus and technique dependent on the type of land the petroleum may be present under,
Design tools and equipment used in petroleum extraction,
Manage a working site which is dedicated to the production of petroleum,
Supervise a team of engineers who are all working to the common goal of extracting petroleum from the earth
A Petroleum Engineer will continually work to the benefit of the employer in mind to ensure they are working to best practices and the most cost-effective methods.
