The field of petroleum refining and petrochemicals provides for very attractive job opportunities. It is one of the highest paying field and professionals trained in this field are very much in demand in most oil fields and oil refineries in the country and abroad, especially in the Gulf countries. This postgraduate course in refinery engineering is very much suitable for those who are aiming to reach up the ladder to managerial and leadership positions. It is also the pathway to pursue research and specialize in one of the areas in petroleum refining by joining a PhD program. It is however a challenging field, as one has to mostly work and reside in tough working conditions, that too, far away from the comforts of home.
Eligibility and course duration
B.E or B.Tech in Petroleum, Petroleum Refining, Petrochemicals, Chemical and other related branches of engineering. Admissions are through GATE or entrance exams.
Duration of the course is 2 years.
More about the course
This is a very useful course for gaining subject knowledge and expertise to work as an engineer in the field of oil and gas exploration as well as refining. It also paves your path for an entry into the petrochemicals sector. The course provides you with a complete understanding of the refining processes and the various processes associated with downstream activities. You get to learn the design of the process systems, operation, maintenance, economics, safety and integrity of the systems. Other than the upstream and the refining processes you also get to learn all about oil exploration, the economics involved in exploration & production and also about renewable energy systems.
There's no dearth of jobs in this field, instead, there's a shortage of trained engineers in the petroleum refining industry. As is apparent, most of the jobs are available in petroleum refining and the petrochemicals industry. Depending upon your area of specialization you can work in various capacities. As a petroleum geologist, you will be exploring possible reservoirs of oil. As a production or reservoir engineer you will work in the oil fields. You can be involved with the laying of the pipelines and transport of the oil from the wells to the refineries or elsewhere. As a refinery engineer you are involved in the refining processes and the production of petrochemicals. You can also get into research; designing and developing more efficient systems and better petrochemicals.
