Scientific Branches

Back


Petroleum Engineering Technology
 

   This engineering branch deals with the application of modern scientific basics in exploring and developing reservoirs and developing the studentsí abilities in various aspects such as studying the basic properties of fluid and rocks, analyzing the laboratory data and field data to use in calculating the size of hydrocarbons in petroleum reservoir, and study the types of oil traps and geology and geophysics exploration methods. 

    It is specialized in developing the engineering ability for the students by studying the ultimate basic design of oil wells to ensure its continuity of flow for many decades, studying pressures in the vertical and horizontal pipes, and their effects on flow rate of fluids in it. In addition, it concerns also in evaluating the flow rate of energy loses in these pipes as well as the secondary connections. This branch also concerns with the separation processes of impurities associated with hydrocarbons by using Insulators.
