Machinery and Equipment for Oil and Gas Exploitation

Course Description

Study program: Mine Mechanization (VII semester -OAS), Petroleum Engineering (V semester -OAS)

Name of subject: Machinery and Equipment for Oil and Gas Exploitation

Instructors: Dr Dejan Ivezić, Aleksandar Madžarević

Status: Optional


Prerequisites: -

Course Objectives: Introducing to principles of operation for different machines and equipment used in petroleum engineering and industry.

Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of the course students should be able to design, use and maintain machines and equipment used in petroleum engineering and industry.


Theory teaching
Through theoretical work students learn about drilling facilities and systems for liquid fluids transport. Drilling facilities (oil drilling rigs) are considered in detail (mast, drawworks, top drive, rotary table, drive group, mud system, BOP equipment, drill pipes, etc.), with emphasize to equipment selection and maintenance. Topics about pumps include - Description of pumps, Definition of the internal work, impeller work and useful work, Flow work per unit - the head, Determination of the head by definition and along the pipeline route, Euler equation for turbomachinery,Powers and efficiencies of pumps, classification by types, cavitation and cavitation reserve, etc. Special emphasize is devoted to pumps used in petrolum engineering and industry (calculation of basic dimensions of pumps, matching of pump performance curves with installation characteristics, Selection of pumps, piston pumps, centrifugal pumps - description, classification, and the working principle).
