Track-2: Geology and Exploration:
The Geology is the study of knowing the origin, movement accumulation and exploration of the hydrocarbon fuels whereas Exploration is the research operations for the deposits of hydrocarbons in the earth using the petroleum geology by the geologist and geophysicists. The activity and management of exploration assets is risky but the risk can be controlled by adopting appropriate workflow and technological innovations.
- Geological mapping and prospecting
- Geophysical methods
- Drilling the exploration well
- Exploration geophysics
- Oil and Gas reserves
Track-3: Drilling and Well Operations:
Drilling is the process of digging a bore hole into the earth’s subsurface using a mechanical rig. After drilling and casing the bore well it must be able to produce oil and gas. A number of steps that are required for the operations is to prepare a location for drilling, operating and finally to reclaim the site. The operation process involves in planning, setting conductor pipe to isolate, drilling the surface hole and set casing for surface to protect the groundwater, after the drilling and casing the well the completion should be done which is to enable to produce oil or gas and finally the production for the extraction of petroleum.
- Offshore drilling
- Hydraulic fracturing
- Oil spill
- Control of drilling operations
- Drilling mud chemicals
The Upstream, Midstream and Downstream are the three production sectors in the Petroleum industry. The upstream sector refers to the exploration and production and it includes searching for the underwater crude oil and gas. The midstream refers to the storage and transportation of crude oils and refined petroleum products and finally the downstream sector refer to the processing of raw materials and refining of crude oil.
- Midstream, upstream interface Optimisation
- Oil Refining Technologies
- Extraction of petroleum
- Oil refinery
Track-5: Onshore and offshore Support:
The onshore and offshore are the two drilling processes. The onshore drilling is the process of digging deep holes under the earth’s surface and the offshore drilling is the drilling underneath the seabed. The main theme of the Onshore and Offshore drilling processes is to extract the natural resources like oil and gas from the earth’s crust. In the extraction of oil and gas the onshore is less elaborate comparative to that of the offshore. In the worldwide 25% of oil deposits are found in the offshore deposits.
- Air emissions
- Well testing
- Waste management
Track-6: Pipelines and Transportation:
In the petroleum industries to transport the extracted oil and gas from wells to refineries the pipelines are used. Through the pipelines the oil is pumped from wellhead to refinery across the land. The transportation takes place through railcars, vessels, pipelines, trucks and tankers. The pipeline transport system is a long distance transportation technique. According to the quantity that is being moved we have to choose the flexible transportation while the transportation is taking place there may be the chances of spilling of oil and the oil is toxic to the living animals.
- Marine vessels
- Rail cars
- Concrete Barge
Track-7: Petroleum and Petrochemicals:
The petroleum is found beneath the earth’s crust. It is a fossil fuel that is it has been the decomposition of organic matter a million years ago. The extracted petroleum is refined into fuel. The petrochemicals are the chemical products that are obtained by refining the petroleum. Example: liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), Petrol, Jet fuel, Kerosene, Diesel Oil, Gasoline and fuel oils. In the petrochemical industries they produce large number of industrial and consumer products such as plastics, rubber, fertilizers and the petrochemical industries primarily produces Ethylene from oil or gas.

In the gasoline refining blending operation, different component streams have been blended into various gasoline grades. The gasoline blending process is more complicated process than any other processes. The main critical issue for petroleum refiner is the selection of components for the final product.
- Optimizing blend for gasoline and diesel fuel
- High temperature blending
Track-10: Fuel Quality Management:
The fuel must be stored carefully and managed to be kept in good premium condition because ethanol and fatty acid methyl esters adsorb water. Due to the poor fuel quality there may happen unnecessary repairs and costly downtimes.
- Fuel Quality Testing
- Fuel Polishing
- Mobile fuel testing equipment
Track-11: Additives and Additive Selection:
The additives are the chemical compounds which are used to improve the performance of the lubricant oil. Different additives are used for each specific application. In all the motor oils there contains the additives, whether the oils are petroleum based or synthetic based. The main use of the additives in the lubricant oils is to protect the engine of the motor vehicle. The additives have different character that is, they are organic or inorganic compounds and they may dissolve or suspended as solids in oil. The role of the additives is to enhance existing base oil properties, impart new properties to base oil and supress undesirable base oil.

The global petrochemicals market size was valued at USD 539.3 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to register a CAGR of 8.5% over the forecast period. The market is driven by increasing product application in major end-use industries such as construction, automobile, and chemical intermediate manufacturing. Ethylene dominates the market in terms of value and volume, owing to its demand as a feedstock in the aforementioned end-use industries.
The European oil and gas market has been volatile in the last few years due to change in demand and supply of oil and gas. The economic crisis has reduced gas consumption rates and so the imports in 2015. This volatility is due to excess supply of gas leading to cheap market value and lack of the US and China import demand due to their shift of interest in unconventional gas production. Tee ebbing demand has led to falling of gasoline’s growth contribution to 7.7% in 2016. In 2017, prices of oil and gas it likely to pull higher due industrialization, colder winter conditions and road transportation in Europe. Also, due to the slowdown of nuclear sector in Europe after Fukushima nuclear disaster, an increase in annual gas consumption of 20 to 40 billion cubic meters is expected from 2016 to 2020. Aftermath of 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, Germany had shut down 7 nuclear power plant and likely to exit more by 2020. Looking further, import of oil and gas by European countries is like to increase.
