Petroleum engineering is no doubt a great career prospect as the name itself implies it is related to oil and gas. Petroleum engineering is related to mostly drilling and the problems that comes for all phases of drilling, the petroleum engineers covers all.
Companies that are associated with petroleum and off shoots of hydro carbons revealed huge profits made on annual basis. This shows the potential of this sector. It can also be understood by the fact that the demand is growing rapidly but locally the production is low, therefore there is need to provide with adequate production facilities, which means there must be huge investment in this sector.
In Pakistan the untapped resources for the production are huge, but government is not making enough efforts for the production facilities. Presently the condition is also not that good because there is less concerns on local production but more on getting an imported product.
Hence there is need to tap the resources here, and produce more locally so that there can be good scope for petroleum engineers, right now since there is less work in the local industries, therefore the scope has shrunk, let us focus on high production locally in order to maximize the scope of petroleum engineers locally.
