Petroleum geology is the study of the origin, natural occurrence, movement, gathering of and exploration of hydrocarbon fuels, especially oil or petroleum. The main focus of petroleum geology is studying and finding oil. Petroleum geology is stratigraphy, the relationship between rock layers and the way they can move or shift. The movement of rock layers can affect where petroleum deposits are found, as well as the removal of the petroleum.

Petroleum geosciences include the exploration and recovery of oil and gas. Hydrocarbons are formed through geological processes in the underground. In order to prove deposits, wells must be drilled. Underground CO2 deposits are an important contribution to reduce emissions, perhaps in combination with injections into the oil reservoirs to improve the recovery factor. The development of new knowledge and technology in this field is also an important element within petroleum geosciences.

Drilling is a unique mechanical process that is designed to bring petroleum oil hydrocarbons to the surface by making a hole or bore into the earth’s surface. In geotechnical engineering, drilling fluid is used to aid the drilling of boreholes into the earth. Drilling rigs are used not only to identify geologic reservoirs but also to create holes that allow the extraction of oil or natural gas from those reservoirs.

Petroleum refinery process in which heavy oil is passed through metal chambers called catalytic cracking or cat cracking under pressure and high temperature in the presence of catalysts such as alumina, silica, or zeolites. Alkylation is the transfer of an alkyl group from one molecule to another. When many molecules of a simple compound join together, the product is called a polymer and the process is termed polymerization.

Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC), a type of secondary unit operation, is primarily used in producing additional gasoline in the refining process.Isomerization is the process in which hydrocarbon molecules are rearranged into a more useful isomer. Reforming is another process in which hydrocarbon molecules are rearranged into other molecules, usually with the loss of a small molecule such as hydrogen.

Crude oil is a mineral oil consisting of a mixture of hydrocarbons of natural origin, yellow to black in color, and of variable density and viscosity. NGLs are the liquid or liquefied hydrocarbons produced in the manufacture, purification and stabilization of natural gas. Additives are non-hydrocarbon substances added to or blended with a product to modify its properties. Refinery production refers to the output of secondary oil products from an oil refinery.

Petrochemistry is made of a mixture of different hydrocarbons. Additionally petroleum chemistry contains several more complex hydrocarbons such as asphaltenes. Each geographical location and hence oil field will produce a raw petrolium with a different combination of molecules depending upon the overall percentage of each hydrocarbon it contains, this directly affects the colouration and viscosity of the petrolium chemistry. In extremely large quantities petroleum has been produced a lot of years by natural changes in organic materials. Offering the necessary building blocks petrochemicals allow downstream industries to originate and improve the quality of life.  Plant oils will replace petroleum in coming year

Enhanced oil recovery (abbreviated EOR) is the implementation of various techniques for increasing the amount of crude oil that can be extracted from an oil field. Carbon dioxide EOR (CO2-EOR) is the method that is gaining the most popularity. Shale gas production has been blocked in many countries largely because of theenvironmental risks involved. These risks and social concerns have resulted in legal restrictions on hydraulic fracturing that have prevented a more extensive development of shale gas worldwide.

Chemical engineer is one who applies and uses principles of chemical engineering in any of its various practical applications; these often include : design, manufacture, and operation of plants and machinery in industrial chemical and related processes ("chemical process engineers"); development of new or adapted substances for products ranging from foods and beverages to cosmetics to cleaners to pharmaceutical ingredients, among many other products ("chemical product engineers"); and development of new technologies such as fuel cells, hydrogen power and nanotechnology, as well as working in fields wholly or partially derived from chemical engineering such as materials science, polymer engineering, and biomedical engineering

Petroleum engineering is a field of engineering that deals with the activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil or natural gas. Exploration and Production are the two main areas in the upstream sector of oil and gas industry which focus on maximizing economic recovery of hydrocarbons from subsurface reservoirs.  Exploration is usually done by the Geologists and Production process is controlled by the petroleum engineers. Petroleum engineering processes mainly involves in understanding the physical behavior of oil, water and gas within porous rocks of subsurface reservoirs at a very high pressure. The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is the largest professional society for petroleum engineers and publishes much information concerning the industry.

Petroleum is formed by hydrocarbons (a hydrocarbon is a compound made up of carbon and hydrogen) with the addition of certain other substances, primarily sulphur. Petroleum in its natural form when first collected is usually named crude oil, and can be clear, green or black and may be either thin like gasoline or thick like tar. The Chemical Processing Industry encompasses a broad range of products, including petrochemical and inorganic chemicals, plastics, detergents, paints and pigments, and more. The feasibility of separation of mixtures by distillation, absorption, or stripping depends on the fact that the compositions of vapor and liquid phases are different from each other at equilibrium. The vapor or gas phase is said to be richer in the more volatile or lighter or less soluble components of the mixture. High boiling points (at atmospheric pressure) or easily decomposed substances may require vacuum distillation to separate.

sustainable energy include renewable energy sources, such as hydroelectricity, solar energy, green energy, wind energy, wave power, geothermal energy, bioenergy, tidal power and also technologies designed to improve energy efficiency. The energy industry, covering new and greener processes for engineers and scientists and urging them to move petroleum operations closer to sustainability. Although petroleum is still the world's most diverse, efficient, and abundant energy source, there is a growing initiative from global political and industry leaders to "go green," because of climate concerns and high gasoline price.

Petroleum products are materials derived from crude oil (petroleum) as it is processed in oil refineries. Unlike petrochemicals, which are a collection of well-defined usually pure chemical compounds, petroleum products are complex mixtures. The majority of petroleum is converted to petroleum products, which includes several classes of fuels. Over 6,000 items are made from petroleum waste by-products including: Fertilizer, Linoleum, Perfume, Insecticide, Petroleum Jelly, Soap, and Vitamin Capsules. See link to partial list of 144 by-products listed by Rankin Energy002E.
