Drilling and Production Engineering

Drilling and Production Engineering

The great complexity of the well drilling process, its high costs, the need to ensure the full efficiency of the rig and the respecting of safety and of the environment call for planning and modeling in developing phase of...
... the well drilling project and continuous optimizing of operations, through the monitoring and processing of all available data, during the project. Production engineering is part of petroleum engineering that attempts to maximize production (or injection) in a cost-effective manner. Petroleum production involves two distinct but connected systems: the reservoir, which is a porous medium with unique storage and flow characteristics; and the artificial structures, which include the well, bottomhole, and wellhead assemblies. In the Drilling and Production Engineering Module, the focus is on borehole drilling/production planning and design, dynamics of drilling process and maintance of production systems as well as produced fluid processing, transportation and storage.
Reservoir engineering

Reservoir engineering

Reservoir engineering study (module) is focused on the characterization of underground structures in order to evaluate the flow of fluid through this porous medium for the purposes of oil, gas, geothermal energy production, but...
... also for gas, CO2, hydrogen heat or compressed air (or other gas) energy storage. Interdisciplinary work, analytical and presentation skills are encouraged in this study. Relevant skills will be developed in the Petroleum Engineering Center for Digitization and Big Data Analysis (at the Faculty), in the sense that it will approach the possibilities of automating the reservoir development process. The required knowledge is acquired through reservoir (numerical) simulation courses, enhanced recovery examples and practical measurements and computational interpretation of core-sample data. During exercises on realistic cases, students use industry-standard simulation and interpretation software to integrate the whole process of research, production data management, history matching and estimates of future reservoir performance both physically and economically.
Geoenergy Engineering and Management

Geoenergy Engineering and Management

The graduate study of geoenergy engineering and management provides students with the opportunity to acquire the extensive knowledge and necessary skills for professional development in today's energy sector. Students will...
... acquire knowledge and necessary skills for planning, developing, and organizing several different energy systems. These energy systems include underground energy and gas storages, energy transformations and exploitation of both shallow and deep geothermal potential. Also, students will acquire knowledge about the organization and functioning of the energy and natural gas markets, business management and economic assessment of an energy project. For additional specialization in a particular field, this study also offers a wide range of elective courses along with professional practice in the energy sector.
