It’s been hundreds of years since we started using fossil fuels in large amounts, thus leading the petrochemical industry to be more efficient at locating and tapping fossil fuels.The growth of the world population pressures for an increasing demand to extract more of the Earth’s non-renewable mineral and fossil fuel resources. These resources are essential for modern living. Hence comes the role of a Petroleum Geologist.
Petroleum and mining geologists are specific type of geologists trained in using scientific methods and advanced techniques to find potential new oil, gas and mineral resources.Because of its strategic location close to the Sinai Peninsula and the Eastern Desert, GU’s Petroleum & Mining Geology Program provides special opportunities for field-based learning.
For a B.Sc. degree in Science, the student should successfully complete a total of 132 credit hours, Classified as follows:
University Requirement: 20 Credit Hours.
Field requirement: 57 Credit Hours.
Specialty requirement: 55 Credit Hours.
In this program, you will:
Apply the geological and geophysical field methods for exploring hydrocarbons with high resolution interpretation outcomes.
Clarify the characteristics and genesis of ore bodies in an area.
Differentiate between the various types of surface and subsurface mines.
Specify the convenient methods for ores extraction.
Determine the best ore dressing technique for industrial uses.
