Environmental Control in Petroleum Engineering activities is designed to provide students with a basic understanding on principles of environmental control in petroleum industry and planning for environmental protection. During the course, students will learn impact of drilling and production operations on environmental contamination and migration pathways of waste in the environment. In addition, waste treatment and disposal methods in petroleum engineering and remediation techniques of the contaminated sites will be discussed. 

The objective of the course is to give the students an insight of fundamentals of petroleum geology; source rock, reservoir, trap, seal, maturation and migration for the understanding of petroleum systems. The course also aims to provide students the basic knowledge of the geological processes and subsurface conditions that form petroleum, the methods of exploration of this resource and sedimentary basins.        

General geology is designed to provide the student with a basic understanding of physical geology and introduction to structural geology. Students will study earth materials, changes on the surface and in the interior of Earth, and the dynamic forces that cause them to change. Reservoir rocks, their properties and sedimentary basins will be clarified. Students will be able to describe and classify three main rock groups. In addition, the role of geology at exploration stage of petroleum resources will be identified. 

A course designed to acquaint the students with the basic concepts of

petroleum industries. Historical background, sources, world supply and demand, chemical

and physical properties of petroleum. Introduction to petroleum exploration, reservoir types

and engineering concepts, production methods, refining and transportation of natural

hydrocarbons.
