Petroleum engineering is a series of projects for the development, use, and research of petroleum resources, mainly for oil and gas field engineering construction, such as oil and gas drilling engineering, oil production engineering, and reservoir engineering. Petroleum engineering specializes in combining theory with practice.
Petroleum is an important energy source and high-quality chemical raw material. It is an important strategic material related to the national economy and the people's livelihood. The petroleum industry is an important basic industry of China's national economy. Since the reform and opening up, China's economy has developed at a high speed, and the demand for energy has become larger and larger. As an important part of the energy, oil accounts for a rapid rise in China's primary energy consumption and production and is basically stable at a certain level. China has also changed from an oil exporting country into a major oil importing country. Oil has become a constraint. The "bottleneck" of China's economic growth.
Petroleum Engineering Professional Employment Analysis
As an important energy source, oil can be said to be the blood of the modern economy. China is a major oil consumer and at the same time the world's fifth largest oil producer. As a basic industry, the oil industry requires a large number of technical talents. The oil production field is characterized by high technology content and strong technical capabilities. With the development of production and the continuous updating of oil enterprise personnel, in the aspect of oil production management and technology application, a large number of advanced technology application talents with high scientific and cultural qualities and vocational skills will be needed. Therefore, graduates of petroleum engineering have a large employment space in oil production enterprises.
Employment destination: mainly in the petroleum engineering field engaged in oil and gas drilling and completion engineering, oil production engineering, reservoir engineering, reservoir evaluation and other aspects of engineering design, engineering construction and management, applied research and technology development.
PetroChina's development strategy is to actively expand and occupy overseas oil exploration and development markets while accelerating the development of domestic petroleum resources. Whether in the domestic market or overseas market in the process of oil exploration and development, cooperation between China and foreign countries is indispensable and necessary. This kind of cooperation requires that employees of petroleum companies must understand international cooperation practices, must have a good level of English, and must have strong professional and technical qualities. In the process of research and communication with enterprises, whether it is CNOOC, PetroChina or Sinopec, there are a large number of highly qualified employees who are adapted to the requirements of the international oil exploration and development market.
