Petroleum Facilities engineering technology is the facilities engineering technology that applicable to oil and gas industry to explore and extract petroleum from the earth economically and to process petroleum crude to finished products to customers. Petroleum subsurface engineering and Facilities engineering are the major area of the oil and gas industry. Petroleum Facilities engineering technology which include production facilities, refineries, chemical and petrochemical complexes are major processing facilities in the oil and gas industry. Constructing these upstream and downstream facilities require comprehensive understanding and experience in various engineering disciplines of the industry’s stringent standard practice and codes. These company standard practices and engineering codes cover feasibility study, engineering design, fabrication, construction, installation, commissioning and maintenance of the facilities or Processing Plant.

Petroleum Facilities Engineering Technology is the technology management of technical know-how that are required to extract and process petroleum efficiently and effectively. This program pools together the knowledge and experience of seniors and petroleum professional from various engineering backgrounds responsible for the exploration, production and processing of the petroleum crude. These experienced personnel will share their expertise in a structured training program, which will boost participants’ competency and confidence in their respective disciplines.

Although in house training, books and lectures cannot substitute actual working experiences, this program provides the participants with the fundamental skills, knowledge and understanding required for their career advancement in their preferred facilities engineering specialization management either based on discipline such project management, mechanical, petroleum economics, process, safety, mechanical, offshore structure, civil, electrical or based on project contracts such as fabrication, supplying or installation & commissioning.

The Professional Master in Petroleum Facilities Engineering Technology is designed for providing an opportunity to participants to:

  • Advance their careers, or to provide new career path to any managerial positions either with oil producers, processing plant owners, oil & gas service companies, engineering consultants, fabricators, installation contractors, vendors or manufacturers.
  • This program is designed specifically to produce engineering discipline managers, construction managers, project managers and CEOs of oil and gas companies


  • Fresh graduates who are interested to pursue their career in oil and gas industry
  • Technical personnel who are interested to pursue their career in managerial level in oil and gas industries
  • Managers in any industries who are interested to pursue their career in oil and gas industry
  • Oil and gas non-technical personnel who are interested to become managers, Project Managers and Plant managers
  • CEO and business owners who interested to build up his Job competencies in oil and gas industry
  • Experience personnel who are interested to join oil and gas industry


After completing this program, the participants will be able to:

  • Perform as Project managers in project development either at consultants, fabricators, contractors or vendors or
  • Perform as Engineering Managers role in field development, asset operation, maintenance and decommissioning or
  • Perform as Manager at any Petroleum Facilities or
  • Perform as Facilities Manager or discipline engineering manager as per their specialization preferred.
