I. Introduction

Seminars are the platform to meet the people with same interest and learn a lot at one clip with most material compressed in short. And, we as petroleum engineers, seminars will help us a lot to gain more knowledge and understand those lectures which are left unanswered in our minds.

They may be exposed to dangerous conditions, equipments and chemicals. They should be also careful about making decisions because once you get wrong billions of dollars will be lost.

III. Observation

Engineers work with geologists to understand a site 's rock as well as to design equipment and processes to recover the resources and reduce operational costs. 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 overlaps with many of the engineering disciplines, such as: mechanical, chemical, and civil.

Petroleum engineers have a future full of challenges and opportunities. They must develop and apply new technology to recover hydrocarbons from oil shale, tar sands, and offshore oil and gas fields. They must also devise new techniques to recover oil left in the ground after application of conventional producing techniques.

Since many petroleum companies conduct worldwide operations, a petroleum engineer may have the opportunity for assignments all over the world. A petroleum engineers must solve the variety of technological and economic problems encountered in these assignments. These exciting technological challenges combine to offer the petroleum engineer a most rewarding career. We
