oil and gas course for mechanical engineers, Upstream Course

Duration: 3 Months      Course fee:  INR 36,000/-

With rising global energy demand, the oil and gas industry has a wide range of challenges and opportunities across the upstream, midstream, downstream and oilfield services sectors. India held nearly 635 MMT of proven oil reserves at the beginning of 2016, mostly in the western part of the country. About 49% of reserves are onshore resources, while 51% are offshore.

Understanding the global demand of the oil and gas upstream criteria we at pertecnica engineering train the candidate right from the investigations, market study, design aspects, explorations, rigs, production platforms, terminals, distribution house, rig safety etc.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is oil and gas upstream?

Upstream is the process of exploration of hydrocarbons. It includes the exploration for crude oil as well as the natural gas.The recovery and production of Petroleum requires a lengthy mechanical process. This includes well exploration, drilling, tank construction and operation. Upstream Petroleum engineering is a combination of activities that are part of our course curriculum.

The scope of oil and gas Upstream Mechanical Engineer?

  • Well Identification, Well surveillance, reviews of process conditions for the wells
  • Provide ‘boots on the ground’ support of well facility
  • Identify the process problems in order to gather failure data and ensure appropriate interventions
  • Monitor and affect optimization of production
  • Conduct root cause failure analyses
  • Design, Installation of Mechanical equipment, Servicing, repair and spares strategies.
  • Provide reliability and maintainability input to the design of new projects including standardization and selection of equipment/parts and components.
  • Provide technical authority input and expert advice for Management of Changes, fitness for service, repair specifications
