Course Description

Upstream petroleum engineers are always in demand.  Currently, reservoirs produce only about 30 per cent of their oil, so petroleum engineers are needed to develop methods to increase oil and gas production.  Petroleum Engineering involves the production of oil and gas (hydrocarbons) from sub surface reservoirs which requires engineering to bring it to the surface, estimate its value and extract it, in other words, finding oil and gas, drilling and producing it.
