Department of Oil and Petroleum Technology


Subharti Institute of Technology & Engineering was established in 2005 with the introduction of undergraduate programme on engineering degree level in computer science, electrical, mechanical, electronic engineering and information technology. Encouraged by the response and the success of these engineering courses, SITE started Bachelor of Technology in oil & petroleum Technology specialization by the great efforts by Dr. Jayant Shekhar. The branch (oil & petroleum Technology) of engineering which deals with the exploration, recovery, refining, development and processing of crude oils to obtain various petroleum products is known as Petroleum Engineering. Petroleum engineers explore new reservoirs worldwide and conduct research activities for inventing new technologies and methods to reduce mining expenditure and to increase productivity. Petroleum refers to crude oil and petroleum engineering is the set of activities related to the production and processing of various products such as gasoline, diesel, heating oil from crude oil.

Petroleum engineers work with geologists to understand the geologic formation and properties of the rock containing the oil reservoir, determine the drilling methods to be used and monitor drilling and production operations. They design equipment and processes to achieve the maximum profitable recovery of oil and gas. Petroleum engineers rely heavily on computer models to simulate reservoir performance using different recovery techniques. Petroleum engineering requires a good knowledge of many other related disciplines, such as geophysics, petroleum geology, formation evaluation (well logging), drilling, economics, reservoir simulation, reservoir engineering, well engineering, artificial lift systems, completions and oil and gas facilities engineering. Petroleum engineers travel deserts, mountains and cold regions of the world in order to find unexplored sources of oil. Petroleum engineers have global career and are hired by oil companies globally.


The vision of the Oil and Petroleum Technology program is to be a world-class provider of education and research for the oil and gas industry, to play a leadership role in providing new technologies in order to increase the petroleum reserves of India and all over world.


The mission of the Oil and Petroleum Technology program is to provide a modern petroleum engineering education with proper balance between theory and practice and to graduate petroleum engineers prepared for life-long learning and capable of being productive contributors for the oil and petroleum industry.

Career Scope in Future

A petroleum engineer is involved in nearly all of the stages of oil and gas field evaluation, development and production. The aim of their work is to maximize hydrocarbon recovery at minimum cost while maintaining a strong emphasis on reducing environmental impact.
Petroleum engineers are divided into several groups:

1. Petroleum geologists: Who find hydrocarbons by analysing subsurface structures with geological and geophysical methods.

2. Reservoir engineers: Who work to optimise production of oil and gas via proper well placement, production levels and enhanced oil recovery techniques. They use computer simulations to assist in the identification of risks and to make forecasts on reservoir potential.

3. Production engineers: who manage the interface between the reservoir and the well through such tasks as perforations, sand control, artificial lift, downhole flow control and downhole monitoring equipment. They also select surface equipment that separates the produced fluids (oil, natural gas and water).

4. Drilling engineers: who manage the technical aspects of drilling both production and injection wells. They work in multidisciplinary teams alongside other engineers, scientists, drilling teams and contractors.

When & How Should Start?

Engineering is the most hunted after class of 12th in India. Any student from 12th standard with mathematics is eligible to take admission in engineering. Diploma candidate can also take admission in B.Tech 2nd year as lateral entry. However, there is a rigorous selection procedure at place for computer engineers wherein admission to the B.E/ B.Tech courses is extremely competitive in most of the best universities like Swami Vivekanand Subharti University. Students who are passionate about technology and machines can become an engineer by cracking engineering entrance exams. Almost some top institute IIT’s, NIT’s and universities, in India such as Swami Vivekanand Subharti University (SVSU, Meerut) offer graduate engineering courses in the stream of oil and petroleum Technology.
