Centre for Petroleum and Applied Geology (U.I.E.A.S.T.)


Centre for Petroleum and Applied Geology (U.I.E.A.S.T.)

This centre has been created recently (23 rd July, 2010) in order to impart specialised teaching, laboratory and field based training to geology students. This course has tremendous scope in the Oil Industry, which is developing very rapidly. Petroleum geology offers opportunities in both field based exploration and lab based research and development. Those who are more inclined towards research and academics, they can get into Universities and Institutes. Therefore, this job oriented course was initiated in order to meet the increasing demands of the Petroleum Industry and academic institutions.

The main objective of the first semester syllabus is to teach the students the fundamental aspects of various disciplines of Geology, such as stratigraphy and micropalaeontology, which have a direct relevance in Petroleum Exploration and Development. A great deal of emphasis has also been laid on the Geological Structures and Sedimentary environments in this Semester. In the second Semester, various techniques in the Petroleum Exploration and Development with special emphasis on Geo-physics and Geo-chemical Exploration are taught. This is followed by an introduction to the study of reservoirs. In the third semester, the students are exposed to the topic of reservoirs, well site techniques, production, economics, policy and managements, in greater detail. They are also taught about the alternative sources of fuel in this semester. In the final semester the students are expected to undergo placement and attachment training at various oil companies, carry out project work and finally submit their reports.
