hello dear

in coming days this engineering will be very demanding engineering in the world.perhaps in present time also it is very much demanding for oil & petrochemical industry.

and i think production engg is better than reservoir engineering .as after production engg you will have job easily.

all the best......

Dear Friend
A petroleum industry requires both production and reservoir engineer. As you are doing petroleum engineering so you can get chance to get any of the two. But it will totally depends on company's requirement and not your choice. If the interviewer asks you about your choice then never make it clear. Just tell that you are equally capable of both. Both section are equally paid. If you clearly say that you wanna be a reservoir engineer and company needs a production engineer then you will be out.
I suggested you to not to for choice because your college is new and you may face problems due to silly mistakes.
Any further query is welcome.
Thank You

Reservoir engineering has a vast scope, because this feild is available at very few colleges throughout the world.
so, there is a great demand of this feild.

A.As a RESERVIOR ENGINEER you will be responsible for what goes on thousands of feet below the surface of the earth. Your role will be to maximize profit from ExxonMobil's oil and gas fields by optimizing the recovery of the oil and gas reserves. You will provide engineering expertise and support for other aspects of production and and facility engineering. You will work in a multi-disciplinary team environment with guidance and mentorship from experienced professional engineers and technologists. Work will require close collaboration with the operational areas, and routine travel to those locations.

Benefits To You

;Technical capability development and training; including your own personal mentor

;Formal career development program to develop and enhance your technical and non-technical skills

;Professional guidance and mentorship to support your Professional Engineering qualification

;Challenging and diverse work assignments in a team environment

;Advancement opportunities in Upstream Production or elsewhere in ExxonMobil domestically or internationally

B.Production Engineering: These deals with integrated design and efficient planning of the entire manufacturing system, which is becoming increasingly complex with the emergence of sophisticated, production methods and control systems.

Well, dont worry about placement PDPU is a good Institute.

Now if we talk about career prospect in the field of Petroleum in India then from last 10 years India has witnessed good career possibilities in this sector.

With the increasing demand of Petrol due to increas of vehicles, other petroleum products like- Diesel, Kerosine, tar etc. all this has created demand of petrol and those Professionals to tackle there needs.

Yeah, as comparing to the Gulf countries India foes'nt promises much in this sector but been a self sufficient Petroleum producer alongwith a big crude oil cunsuming coutry India has its best.

India has lesser jobs in Upstream, in which basically production and exploration of petrol is involve. So, India being less Petrol producing country has lesser job oppurtunitie in this sector.

Where as in Downstrem, which mainly involves Refining, distributing, extraction etc. Indian market is just booming, because Indian been one of the largest Crude Oil consuming country in Indian market, need huge number of professionals to tackle with it.

But as compared to other branches of engineering Petroleum Engineers has tough job. At starting you have to go through 10-12 hrs of tough schedule.

But pay package are more or less handsome. Fresher can expect 25,00-45,000/month starting depending about onces Talent and Quality of Education gained by someone.

Where as if you are going to Gulf countrie say Dubai, Kuwait, Saudi, Oman etc. The starting salary will be 36,000-48,000/month will all other accomadation.

Where as if we talk about Reservoir or Production Engineering then genarally Production Engineering takes a lead. And being a Petroleum Engineer PRoduction is a good option.
