Importance & Scope:
Petroleum engineering is a field of engineering concerned with the activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil or natural gas. Exploration and Production are deemed to fall within the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry. Exploration, by earth scientists, and petroleum engineering are the oil and gas industry's two main subsurface disciplines, which focus on maximizing economic recovery of hydrocarbons from subsurface reservoirs. Petroleum geology and geophysics focus on provision of a static description of the hydrocarbon reservoir rock, while petroleum engineering focuses on estimation of the recoverable volume of this resource using a detailed understanding of the physical behaviour of oil, water and gas within porous rock at very high pressure.
The combined efforts of geologists and petroleum engineers throughout the life of a hydrocarbon accumulation determine the way in which a reservoir is developed and depleted, and usually they have the highest impact on field economics. 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.
Recruitment to the industry has historically been from the disciplines of physics, chemical engineering and mining engineering. Subsequent development training has usually been done within oil companies.
Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia and Oceania. Located on Australia's east coast, the metropolis surrounds Port Jackson and extends about 70 km (43.5 mi) on its periphery towards the Blue Mountains to the west, Hawkesbury to the north, the Royal National Park to the south and Macarthur to the south-west. Sydney is made up of 658 suburbs, 40 local government areas and 15 contiguous regions. Residents of the city are known as "Sydneysiders". As of June 2017, Sydney's estimated metropolitan population was 5,230,330 and is home to approximately 65% of the state's population.
Indigenous Australians have inhabited the Sydney area for at least 30,000 years, and thousands of engravings remain throughout the region, making it one of the richest in Australia in terms of Aboriginal archaeological sites. During his first Pacific voyage in 1770, Lieutenant James Cook and his crew became the first Europeans to chart the eastern coast of Australia, making landfall at Botany Bay and inspiring British interest in the area. In 1788, the First Fleet of convicts, led by Arthur Phillip, founded Sydney as a British penal colony, the first European settlement in Australia. Phillip named the city Sydney in recognition of Thomas Townshend, 1st Viscount Sydney. Penal transportation to New South Wales ended soon after Sydney was incorporated as a city in 1842. A gold rush occurred in the colony in 1851, and over the next century, Sydney transformed from a colonial outpost into a major global cultural and economic centre. After World War II, it experienced mass migration and became one of the most multicultural cities in the world. At the time of the 2011 census, more than 250 different languages were spoken in Sydney. In the 2016 Census, about 35.8% of residents spoke a language other than English at home. Furthermore, 45.4% of the population reported having been born overseas, making Sydney the third largest foreign born population of any city in the world after London and New York City, respectively.

Track 1: Advances in Petroleum Engineering:
Oil designing is a mix of advancement, investigation, and extension. This significant fuel the world and gives the structure squares to each other calling to successfully complete its work." Energy is a key part in our regular day to day existences. A protected vitality future requires a harmony between ecological sway and moderate supply. Oil and Geosystems engineers can address and fathom significant issues that will prompt vitality security and in this manner are popular. Oil designs progressively utilize propelled PCs, not just in the investigation of investigation information and reproduction of store conduct yet in addition in computerization of oilfield creation and penetrating tasks.
Track 2: Fuels and Refining:
For the most part, rough oil is warmed and changed into a gas. The hot gases are passed into the base of a refining section and become cooler as they climb the tallness of the segment. As the gases cool underneath their breaking point, they gather into a fluid. The fluids are then drawn off the refining segment at explicit statures, running from overwhelming dwells at the base, crude diesel energizes in the midriff, and crude gas at the top. These crude divisions are then prepared further to make a few diverse completed items.
Albeit all parts of oil discover utilizes, the best request is for gas. One barrel of rough oil contains just 30-40% fuel. Transportation requests require that over half of the unrefined petroleum be "changed over" into gas. To satisfy this need some oil divisions must be changed over to fuel. This might be finished by splitting separating enormous particles of substantial warming oil and lives; transforming changing sub-atomic structures of low-quality gas particles; and isomerization - reworking the iotas in an atom with the goal that the item has a similar concoction recipe yet has an alternate structure, for example, changing over ordinary butane to isobutene.
By and large, the least difficult treatment facilities comprise of rough, vacuum, improving and some hydrotreating limit. The following degree of multifaceted nature includes feline splitting and some extra hydro treating. The most perplexing treatment facilities include cooking, more hydrotreating, and hydrocracking.
Track 3: Petroleum Geology:
Oil topography is the investigation of source, event, development, aggregation, and investigation of hydrocarbon powers. It alludes to the particular arrangement of geographical orders that are applied to the quest for hydrocarbons (oil investigation).
Oil topography is basically worried about the assessment of seven key components in sedimentary bowls:
An auxiliary trap, where a flaw has compared a permeable and porous store against an impermeable seal. Oil (appeared in red) aggregates against the seal, to the profundity of the base of the seal. Any further oil relocating in from the source will disappear to the surface and leak.
Assessment of the source utilizes the strategies for geochemistry to measure the idea of natural rich rocks which contain the antecedents to hydrocarbons, with the end goal that the sort and nature of removed hydrocarbon can be surveyed. The supply is a permeable and porous lithological unit or set of units that holds the hydrocarbon saves. Investigation of repositories at the most straightforward level requires an evaluation of their porosity (to ascertain the volume of in situ hydrocarbons) and their penetrability (to figure how effectively hydrocarbons will stream out of them). A portion of the key disciplines utilized in store examination are the fields of auxiliary investigation, stratigraphy, sedimentology, and supply building. The seal, or top shake, is a unit with low porousness that obstructs the break of hydrocarbons from the supply
Shake. Regular seals incorporate dissipates, chalks, and shale's. Investigation of seals includes appraisal of their thickness and degree, to such an extent that their adequacy can be evaluated.
Track 4: Petroleum Distillation and Refining:
Oil refining forms are the compound designing procedures and different offices utilized in oil treatment facilities (likewise alluded to as petroleum processing plants) to change unrefined petroleum into helpful items, for example, condensed oil gas (LPG), oil or gas, lamp fuel, stream fuel, diesel oil, and fuel oils.
Oil treatment facilities are exceptionally huge modern edifices that include a wide range of preparing units and assistant offices, for example, utility units and capacity tanks. Every treatment facility has its very own special course of action and blend of refining forms to a great extent controlled by the processing plant area, wanted items, and financial contemplations.
Track 5: Reservoir Engineering:
Store designing is a part of oil building that applies logical standards to the seepage issues emerging during the improvement and generation of oil and gas repositories in order to acquire a high financial recuperation. The working devices of the supply engineer are subsurface geography, applied science, and the fundamental laws of material science and science administering the conduct of fluid and fume periods of unrefined petroleum, gaseous petrol, and water in the repository shake important to the store, engineers are producing precise stores gauges for use in money related answering to the SEC and other administrative bodies. Other work obligations incorporate numerical repository demonstrating, creation anticipating, great testing, admirably penetrating and workover arranging, monetary displaying, and PVT investigation of supply liquids
Track 6: Petrochemistry:
Petrochemistry is made of a blend of various hydrocarbons. Also, oil science contains a few increasingly complex hydrocarbons, for example, asphaltenes. Each topographical area and henceforth oil field will deliver crude oil with an alternate mix of atoms relying on the general level of every hydrocarbon it contains, this legitimately influences the shading and thickness of the oil science. In very enormous amounts oil has been delivered a ton of years by characteristic changes in natural materials. Offering the vital structure squares petrochemicals enable downstream ventures to begin and improve the personal satisfaction. Plant oils will supplant oil in the coming year.
Track 7: Processing units used in refineries:
Oil refining forms are the compound building forms and different offices utilized in oil treatment facilities (likewise alluded to as petroleum processing plants) to change unrefined petroleum into helpful items, for example, condensed oil gas (LPG), gas or oil, lamp oil, fly fuel, diesel oil, and fuel oils. Oil treatment facilities are huge mechanical buildings that include various handling units and helper offices, for example, utility units and capacity tanks. Every treatment facility has its own extraordinary game plan and mix of refining forms generally controlled by the processing plant area, wanted items, and monetary contemplations. Some advanced oil treatment facilities process as much as 800,000 to 900,000 barrels (127,000 to 143,000 cubic meters) every day of unrefined petroleum.
Rough and condensate generation in 2015 arrived at the midpoint of 50,600 bpd, up from 2014 creation of 48,800 bpd. The dark oil rate arrived at a high of 51,000 bpd in June 2015, with a yearly normal of 46,200 bpd. A few key activities were finished to improve oil and gas generation, dealing with limit, reconnaissance, and diminish personal time.
Oil activities effectively appointed 65 new oil wells. These new wells contributed fundamentally to the creation adjustment in 2015
Track 9: Geophysical Exploration:
Geophysical Exploration is the application of the principles of Physics to the study of the subsurface, in search of hydrocarbon. Geophysical investigations of the interior of the earth involve taking measurements at or near earth’s surface that are influenced by the internal distribution of physical properties. The objective of any exploration venture is to find new volumes of hydrocarbons at a low cast and in a short span of time. The usual sequence of activities once an area has been selected for exploration starts with the definition of a basin. Petroleum exploration and production are concerned with the geological interpretation of geophysical data, especially in offshore areas.
Track 10: Hydraulic Fracturing:
Hydraulic Fracturing is the process of pumping fluid into a wellbore at an injection rate that is too high for the formation to accept without breaking. During injection the resistance to flow in the formation increases, the pressure in the wellbore increases to a value called the break-down pressure that is the sum of the in-situ compressive stress and the strength of the formation. Once the formation “breaks down,” a fracture is formed, and the injected fluid flows through it. From a limited group of active perforations, ideally a single, vertical fracture is created that propagates in two "wings" being 180° apart and identical in shape and size. In naturally fractured or cleated formations, it is possible that multiple fractures are created and/or the two wings evolve in a tree-like pattern with increasing number of branches away from the injection point.
Track 11: Advanced Drilling Technologies:
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. Traditionally oil and gas wells are vertically drilled. Technological advancements have allowed operators to save time, reduce operational costs, and lessen their environmental impact.
Petroleum Engineering makes use of technology in a variety of ways depending on the specialization area. The reason for this is because the ability to extract hydrocarbons has become more complex as the terrain has become more difficult including deep-water, arctic and desert conditions. Therefore, new solutions have had to be constructed in order to access these hard to reach deposits and this means that Petroleum Engineers need to understand different areas such as thermo-hydraulics, geo-mechanics and intelligent systems. As a result petroleum engineering technology applications have played an increasing role in aiding engineers in their work. Petroleum engineering technology continues to improve and there have been advances in computer modelling and simulation, statistical and probability analysis, as well new technical innovations such as horizontal drilling and enhanced oil recovery. These applications and technologies have substantially improved the tools used by the Petroleum Engineer in recent years, and they will continue to play an important part in their activities as they seek to research and develop new ways to extract new deposits, while lowering the cost of drilling and production.
Track 13: Computational Modelling Techniques:
Monte Carlo simulation is a process of running a model numerous times with a random selection from the input distributions for each variable. The results of these numerous scenarios can give you a "most likely" case, along with a statistical distribution to understand the risk or uncertainty involved. Computer programs make it easy to run thousands of random samplings quickly. one form of a volumetric model for oil in place, N, in terms of area, A; net pay, h; porosity, φ; water saturation, Sw; and formation volume factor, Bo.
N = 7,758Ahφ(1 - Sw) / Bo. Think of A, h, φ, Sw, and Bo as input parameters and N as the output.
The traditional tornado chart consists of bars of various length indicating the range of values of some key output (cost, reserves, NPV) associated with the full range of values.
Like tornado charts, a spider diagram is a traditional but limited. Again, one holds fixed all but one variable and examines how the output changes (usually measured as a percent change) as we vary that one input (usually by a few specific percentages). Typically, we might vary each input by 5, 10, and 20% and see how much the output changes. Often the percent change is not linear, causing the resulting graph to have broken line segments, accounting for the name: spider diagram
Track 14: Advanced Natural Gas Engineering:
Natural gas is a subcategory of petroleum which is naturally occurring complex mixture of hydrocarbons, with a minor amount of inorganic compounds. Geologists and chemists agree that petroleum originates from plants and animal remains that accumulate on the sea floor along with the sediments that form sedimentary rocks. The contributing factors are thought to be bacterial action; shearing pressure during compaction, heat and natural distillation at depth possible addition of hydrogen from deep-seated sources presence of catalysts. Because natural gas is petroleum in a gaseous state, it is always accompanied by oil that is liquid petroleum. Non associated gas is from reservoirs with minimal oil. Associated gas is the gas dissolved in oil under natural conditions in the oil reservoir. Gas condensate refers to gas with high content of liquid hydrocarbon at reduced pressures and temperatures. Natural gas reserves include Proved reserves and Potential resources. Proved reserves are the quantities of gas that have been found by the drill. Potential resources constitute those quantities of natural gas that are believed to exist in various rocks of the Earth’s crust but have not yet been found by drill.
Track 15: Petro physics & Petro chemistry:
Petro physics is the study of physical and chemical rock properties and their interactions with fluids. A major application of Petro physics is in studying reservoirs for the hydrocarbon industry. Petro physicists are employed to help reservoir engineers and geoscientists understand the rock properties of the reservoir, particularly how pores in the subsurface are interconnected, controlling the accumulation and migration of hydrocarbons. Some of the key properties studied in Petro physics are lithology, porosity, water saturation, permeability and density. A key aspect of Petro physics is measuring and evaluating these rock properties by acquiring well log measurements in which a string of measurement tools are inserted in the borehole, core measurements - in which rock samples are retrieved from subsurface and seismic measurements.
Petro chemistry is a branch of chemistry that studies the transformation of crude oil (petroleum) and natural gas into useful products or raw materials. These petrochemicals have become an essential part of the chemical industry today.
Petroleum-derived contaminants constitute one of the most prevalent sources of environmental degradation in the industrialized world. In large concentrations, the hydrocarbon molecules that make up crude oil and petroleum products are highly toxic to many organisms, including humans. Petroleum also contains trace amounts of sulphur and nitrogen compounds, which are dangerous by themselves and can react with the environment to produce secondary poisonous chemicals. The dominance of petroleum products in the United States and the world economy creates the conditions for distributing large amounts of these toxins into populated areas and ecosystems around the globe. The environmental impact of petroleum is often negative because it is toxic to almost all forms of life and its extraction fuels climate change. Petroleum, commonly referred to as oil, is closely linked to virtually all aspects of present society, especially for transportation and heating for both homes and for commercial and industrial activities.
Track 17: Petroleum Substitutes:
The scale of global fossil fuel consumption is massive. While fossil fuel consumption continues to increase to sustain our growing population and the advancement of developing nations most of this increase in consumption comes from coal and natural gas. Coal and gas production rates are currently increasing faster than consumption rates. For petroleum oil however, consumption has grown faster than oil production in the same period largely due to the plateau in production of conventional oil a harbinger of some major challenges and changes to the future energy mix. The petroleum industry can exploit a range of feedstock for the production, processing and transformation of liquid hydrocarbons, of which conventional oil has until recently, been the cheapest and most readily accessible. A significant factor in the choice of future feedstock will be the impact on global CO2 emissions for which targets have been set by many governments suggesting a trend that is likely to increase. If effective, these targets would impose a market premium increasingly favouring CO2-neutral feedstock, including fuels derived from algae.
Track 18: Major Challenges in Petroleum Industry:
Petroleum Economics is about how oil and gas activities are driven by economic considerations, and how the values are shared. Just about anyone working with the petroleum sector needs to understand some fundamentals of its economics. Petroleum Economics has a vital role to play in the Oil & Gas Industry and it lies at the heart of all decision making. Various techniques have evolved over time in determining and calculating economic inputs, evaluating investments, quantifying risk and generating feasible portfolios. Petroleum Economics brings together information and expertise across the E&P spectrum and a clear understanding of concepts such as cash flow analysis, organizational challenges, price forecasting, cost drivers and risk management is required. This training event aims to bring together a wide industry audience including practitioners of economics and decision making, petroleum engineers & geoscientists and offers structured short interactive training sessions on topics such as Economic Modelling, Decision Analysis, Exploration Analysis and Economics of Unconventional Resources.
Chemical production in the European Union is expected to barely grow faster than in 2016. In general, the increase in production will remain modest against the backdrop of a sluggish domestic market. We expect competitive pressure on export markets to remain intense, even though the naphtha-based European chemical industry benefits more from low oil prices than the gas-based production in the United States.
In the United States, we expect somewhat faster growth in chemical production, at just under 2%, as new production capacity, which will also be used for export, comes on stream. Overall chemical growth is likely to decelerate somewhat in the emerging markets of Asia, mainly due to the slowdown in China, which will affect the other developing countries in the region. In Japan, we presume a weak overall economic environment and minimal growth in chemical production. In South America, the anticipated end of the recession in Argentina and Brazil will result in slight growth in chemical production in the region.

Today, many materials chemists are synthesizing functional device materials, and the discipline is often seen as directed towards producing materials with function—electrical, optical, or magnetic. Material chemistry is involved in the designing and processing of materials. Global market for catalysts is expected to reach $28.5 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR (2015 to 2020) of over 3%. Asia-Pacific is having the largest market for catalysts accounting for more than 35% share.
