Council for Foreign Education in Russia (CFER) welcomes foreign students to study Petroleum Engineering with experienced Professors in reputed Russian Universities.  A degree in Petroleum Engineering will enable you to be employable with world famous companies, such as Exxon Mobil, GAZPROM, RosNeft, British Petroleum, Shell, etc. With  CFER's unique expertise over the years, students will be able to take maximum advantage and leverage it during their academic stay and for their future career.

The Petroleum Engineering programs fortify scientists and engineers to create novel technological solutions for enhancing recovery of the existing hydrocarbon sources (secondary and tertiary recovery methods) and developing new methods for recovering unconventional hydrocarbon reserves (tight oils, heavy oils, bituminous sands, oil shale, gas hydrates, etc.).

Reservoir Engineering involves assessing oil and gas deposits. Reservoir engineers firstly estimate the size of a reservoir, then determine how much oil and gas reserves are in the reservoir and finally work out how to maximize the economic return from extracting them. The ultimate responsibility of the reservoir engineer is to maximise the output of the reservoir without causing overproduction. Overproduction implies producing more than storage, transport, processing and selling capacity at any given time. This generally leads to wasted resources and shortens the lifespan of the reservoir.' ...continue reading "Study Petroleum Engineering in Russia. Degree profiles"
