Engineering discipline that deals with the exploration, drilling, exploitation and development of oil and gas fields, as well as the transport, storage, distribution and marketing of hydrocarbons. This discipline points to the efficient and sustainable exploitation of hydrocarbons through the use and integration of clean and safe technologies, materials, energy, environment and community relations.

Petroleum engineering includes the following specialization areas:

  • Petroleum geology
  • Exploration and exploitation
  • Drilling and wells
  • Reservoirs
  • Petroleum and natural gas production
  • Hydrocarbons transport and storage
