Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (Department Visitation)
I believe that petroleum and natural gas engineering or is the perfect major and career for me. Petroleum and Natural Gas engineering otherwise abbreviated as PNGE to me is one of the most interesting, in depth, and overall the best suite of engineering for myself, not to mention that is where the booming money is. I am also no stranger to the natural gas industries. I had grown up on rural farm in Pennsylvania about 35 miles south of Pittsburgh. Around six years ago a natural gas drilling company bought some property rights off of my grandfather to get the go-ahead to drill on certain parts of our property. This was the first time I was exposed to what the natural gas industries could do and had much potential, and from that point on I knew what I wanted to attend college for, PNGE.
There are different types of petroleum and natural gas engineers such as Petroleum Geologist, Production Engineers, Reservoir Engineers, and Drilling Engineers. Petroleum Geologist are a little bit different than the other engineers, hence they are a geologists. The Petroleum Geologists are the workers who find the hydrocarbon compound which is the main component in petroleum and natural gas. They find the compound by analyzing geological and structural features in the land. The Petroleum Geologists then transfer it over to the Drilling Engineers, who bring about the drilling and manage the technical aspects of the production of the drilling. However obviously the Drilling Engineers do not do the actually drilling, alongside of them is a team of scientists and drilling contractors that help in the actual production and drilling of the oil. After the Drilling Engineers and the team behind them actually start producing the oil then reservoirs can be made for the oil, which is where the Reservoir Engineers come into play. The Reservoir Engineers are worker whose main job is to optimize the production of the oil and gas...
