CE 452LEC Petroleum Engineering


Petroleum engineering encompasses activities related to the production of hydrocarbons (crude oil and natural gas), ranging from exploration and drilling, to well completion and production, to processing and transportation of hydrocarbon products. This course introduces key terminology and concepts from petrophysics, drilling, production and reservoir engineering that are needed to understand oil and gas production. Topics covered include: properties of reservoir fluids and rock; petroleum geology; well drilling, logging, and completion; enhanced oil recovery; upstream facilities; production and reservoir performance; midstream and downstream operations; and flow assurance. The course places oil and gas production in the global energy context, and discusses economics, environmental and regulatory issues. This course is dual listed with CE 552.
