Petroleum Engineering

Petroleum engineering is the field of engineering concerned with the exploration, extraction and storage of petroleum, among other activities. As a profession, a graduate with a Master in Petroleum Engineering can work as a reservoir engineer, drilling engineer, or a production engineer. These professionals work on the interface between the oil wells and oil reservoirs. They ensure that environmental factors, such as flow, silt and undesirable liquids are managed thoroughly and they maintain the equipment used for monitoring operations as well.

A Master in Petroleum Engineering program will explore topics such as production operations, hydraulic fracturing, economics, oil recovery processes, natural gas engineering, and project management among many others. There are a range of options to meet the needs of most students, including full-time and part-time programs in countries around the globe. Prospective students of Master in Petroleum Engineering must possess a formidable command of mathematics and engineering science. They must also bear sound understanding of related sciences, such as geology, economics and geophysics.

The petroleum industry remains as one of the most lucrative in the world today despite increasing pressure to shift away from fossil fuels to renewables. And as such, graduates of the Master in Petroleum Engineering programs have great potential for successful and lucrative careers. Learn more about the programs below!

Master in Engineering: Hydrocarbon Reservoirs

University of Tehran, Kish International Campus
Campus Full time Part time September 2019 Iran Tehran

Petroleum engineering is the strand of engineering concerned with upstream operations of producing oil and gas from underground reserves. Reservoir engineering is a subdivision of Petroleum engineering that deals with modeling the reservoir fluid movement and maximizing oil and gas recovery. [+]

Introduction:

Petroleum engineering is the strand of engineering concerned with upstream operations of producing oil and gas from underground reserves. Reservoir engineering is a subdivision of Petroleum engineering that deals with modeling the reservoir fluid movement and maximizing oil and gas recovery. The main topics of study in reservoir engineering are phase behavior of fluids in a reservoir, reservoir rock properties, fluid flow in porous media, reservoir simulation, rock-fluid interactions, well testing, well performance, material balance, natural reservoir drive mechanisms, and various methods of improved and enhanced oil recovery.

The tasks of the reservoir engineer are centered on answering the following questions: How much oil and gas is originally in place? What are the drive mechanisms for the reservoir? What are the trapping mechanisms for the reservoir? What will be the recovery factor for the reservoir by primary depletion? What will be the future production rates from the reservoir? How can the recovery be increased economically?... [-]
