The Petroleum Engineering department of JCT College of Engineering and Technology organized a One Day Seminar On “Piping Project Planning And Pipeline Engineering Design” on 12th august 2015 at the seminar hall. Mr.S.Logesh, Executive director from ARRIS CADD TECHNOLOGY, addressed the gathering. The details about job opportunities, requirements of piping design skills in Petroleum Engineering, and soft skills to be needed for enhancing the engineering skill development were explained to the students. The onsite and offsite exploration of petroleum crude necessitates transportation of fluids in large quantities through long distances. The refining operations are depending on huge volume transfer of treated petroleum fractions. He grouped the subjects into four major categories viz; project planning, piping layout, piping design and piping fabrication. Each group requires computational approach and software are available; the industry is looking for personal with exposure to piping design software’s. He briefed about the various oil fields in India and abroad and expertise required in project managements, logistics, fabrication and testing and operational procedures in oil and gas fields. The students were given an opportunity to interact with the speaker.
