Petroleum Technology


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. Petroleum engineering has historically been one of the highest paid engineering disciplines. Andhra Pradesh is well known for its Petroleum resources as one of the biggest petroliferous basin of the world known as KG basin endows the state.

PETROLEUM TECHNOLOGY is a four-year course of eight terms permanently affiliated to the JNTU-K and is approved by AICTE, New, Delhi. The program covers courses related to components in Petroleum Industry including petroleum exploration, reservoir engineering, production engineering, well engineering, drilling engineering, environment engineering and refining technology. Elective subjects like unconventional hydrocarbon resources, well control, production enhancement and optimization, carbon management, petroleum economics and transport of oil and gas are introduced in the curriculum of final year of petroleum engineering.

The students are encouraged to participate in different co curricular activities organized at national and international level. They are also exposed to mini/main projects in leading petroleum industries. An industrial exposure gives them understanding of working environment and challenges in Petroleum Industry.Its purely a industry integrated program..
