The Petroleum Engineering department has been involved in extensive research work. Some of the key research areas are:

  • Deepwater development (heavy foam for well drilling).
  • EOR (thermal & surfactant) for complicated reservoirs.
  • Reservoir characterization.
  • Petroleum Data Technology Consortium (PDTC)
  • Horizontal well completion (ICD, DTS technologies).
  • Multi-lateral wells (fishbone).
  • Low-permeability reservoirs.
  • Synthetic oil-based muds.
  • Fracing technology.
  • Bit corrosion.
