Petroleum engineering is a field of engineering concerned with the activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil or natural gas. Exploration and production are deemed to fall within the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry. Petroleum engineering is the oil and gas industry’s two main subsurface disciplines, which focus on maximizing the economic recovery of hydrocarbons from subsurface reservoirs. Petroleum Geology focuses on the provision of a static description of the hydrocarbon reservoir rock, while petroleum engineering focuses on the estimation of the recoverable volume of this resource using a detailed understanding of the physical behavior of oil, water, and gas which are present in high pressure.
