Is Assam famous for petroleum or coal?

Assam has abundant mineral resources coal, petroleum, limestone and natural gas are the principal mineral resources. It is also the largest producer of crude oil in India. Other minor minerals include magnetic quartzite, silimanites, iron, ore clay and fredspar etc. Oil India Limited (OIL) is the second largest hydrocarbon exploration and production Indian public sector company with its operational headquaters in Duliajan, Assam. India under the adminstrative control of the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. Assam is a major producer of crude oil and natural gas in India. It was the second place in the world where petroleum was discovered. Asia's first sucessful mechanically drilled oil well was Makum (Assam) way back in 1867. The second oldest oil well in the world still produces crude oil. One of the biggest public sector oil companies in the country. Assam has four oil refineries located at Guwahati, Digboi, Numaligarh, and Bongaigoan with total capacity of 7 MMT

The Glory and Heartbreak of the Old Dog

It’s a delicate thing. We thought our dog was eight years old — or maybe we wanted her to be eight years old, which isn’t exactly like being a puppy, but feels like the solid if slightly overripe prime of life, when the dog and you know each other’s habits inside out, and you walk together when you want, and if you’re feeling lazy, the dog is happy to just hang out and pretend you both did some exercise and are now enjoying its pleasant aftermath.
But we were lying to ourselves. She’s eleven. That’s a far cry from eight for a dog, really, and there are mornings these days when she wants to sleep in, and afternoons when she wants to sleep in, and she has started eyeing stairs with reluctance. On occasion, she’s creaky and slow to unhinge her hips when she gets up. There is nothing crueler than the fact human and animal lifespans are so out of synch. I would have been happy to have one dog for my entire life, absolutely content. Variety is very appealing in certain aspects of existence, but dogs? Nah. One lifelong dog would have suited me just fine.
So now that the truth of our dog’s age has been exposed (it was our vet who did the dirty deed), we can see the faint and awful outlines of the approaching end of her life. Not tomorrow, of course, because she is — knock on wood — generally healthy, and maybe well past tomorrow, but we’d be fools not to take note. Our previous dog died very suddenly when he was nine. It was out of the blue, while we were out of town, and came with absolutely no warning. He was youngish enough that we hadn’t even begun the doomsday thinking that begins as soon as you shift your dog to senior food: What will we do when he’s gone?
I’m toying with the idea of overlap. A new pup will be good company, right? And its puppyish, ping-ponging energy will turn back the clock for the old dog, almost like a vitamin infusion. Right? I stroke my dog’s gorgeous old head and tell myself that, and then I have the horrible pang of wondering if she’ll see it for what it is. Like a king taking on a second, younger wife. A spare for when she departs this world. Which it would be, of course. When our other dog died we were flattened, bereft. The time between that and when we got another dog was as sad as anything. I know our dog shopping now is a precaution against experiencing again that dogless, bleak, in-between time.
I follow a bunch of Instagram accounts of dog rescues. Each night I check in on them, pinning my heart to one or two, then stealing a glance at my old dog and wondering whether she would thank us or feel betrayed. I wish I knew.

Colleges of India Having Petroleum Engineering Along With The Petroleum Student Chapters

Petroleum Engineering Petroleum engineering is a recent development in the field of technical education which is becoming very much popular among young masses.Petroleum Engineers are involved in exploration and production activities of petroleum which is an upstream end of an energy sector. Petroleum Engineering is a field of engineering concerned with the activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil of natural gas. Exploration and production are deemed to fall with in the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry. The prime motive of petroleum engineers to locate a natural reservoirs of petroleum deposits. They work to develop more effective, cost-efficient methods of petroleum recovery through the application of principles from chemistry, mathematics, engineering and geology.  The study covers a wide range of topics including economics, geology, geochemistry, geopolitics, geomechanics, geophysics, oil drilling, knowledge management, seismology

Upstream, Midstream and Downstream in Oil and Gas Industry

Petroleum Industry The oil and gas industry is usually divided into three major sector : upstream, midstream and downstream. Upstream Sector:-  • The upstream sector includes searching for potential underground or underwater crude oil and natural gas fields. Exploration Services involve use of seismic methods to evaluate where and how to prove a drilling prospect, high speed computers, 3D and visual interpretation theatres. Drilling includes well design, drilling rig operation  and process and related technologies. Well Completion involves bringing the production on line with advanced downhole equipment applications, downhole monitoring and automated well control equipment. Midstream Sector  • Midstream is a term used to describe one of the three major stages of oil and gas industry. Midstream activities include the storage, processing and transportation of petroleum product and natural gas. • Midstream refers to points in the oil production process that falls b
