Mobile devices help engineering students as they have to stay in classes and are away from computers. Also, Mobile devices can be carried around and we can access it at any time. So the exchange of information is becoming easier.

We earlier have written about 5 apps for civil engineers, 10 apps for engineering students and 5 apps for GATE preparations.

We have also written a huge list of 100 apps for civil engineers. If you are a working oil and gas professional, you should check these 10 apps for oil and gas professionals.

Now the questions come what all mobile apps do a petroleum engineering student needs in his/her mobile? I have listed down 5 Android apps that every petroleum engineer must install in their devices.

1. Petroleum Engineering Dictionary

This dictionary is a must have for petroleum engineering students. Equipped with dynamic search function like Google, it starts predicting while you type. You will be able to bookmark all your favourite translations for fast reference to your favourites list by clicking on the “star” icon. And being a student, you can always add new terms in the dictionary for helping other students. It’s easy to use and occupies minimal space in your device.

2. Oil and Gas Calculations Lite

This is a simplified handy application for Oil & Gas Correlations & Calculations. A must-have tool for all Oil & Gas Professionals and Engineers. This includes features like Pipe Design, Cementing, Drilling Mudding, Drill Pipe, Mud Pumps, Reservoir Engineering, Rock-Fluid Properties, Mechanical Design, Formation Evaluation, Well Logging, Oil and Gas units, Oil Field units, Unit Converter and more.

3. PetroCalc

This app was developed with the petroleum engineering student and young professional in mind. The app offers to the student the ability to learn about topics related to the petroleum engineering field and presents industry relevant calculations.  It gives the student a comprehensive over view of the industry. The app presents guidelines for persons undertaking field development projects as well.

4. Oil Volume Converter

One of the most important apps for petroleum engineers. All of the petroleum engineering students, graduates and working professionals require converting the volume of oil into different units. This app offers liquid hydrocarbons and oil unit conversions as per the Society of Petroleum Engineers standards. Convertor unites include: Barrels of oil (bbl), Cubic feet (f3), Cubic meters (m3), Liters (l), Imperial gallons (UK gal) and US gallons (gal)

5. Drilling Engineering

Drilling Engineering mobile application is provided by Drilling UTC of Pertamina for anyone who works and or engaged in oil and gas activity, particularly in planning and drilling operations. “Drilling Engineering” mobile application includes Petroleum Unit Conversion to convert the units are often used in drilling operations, including the Temperature, Pressure, Density, depth and other parameters, Drilling Calculator consists of approximately 90 base drilling calculations, both in drilling operations and design, Cementing formulas and more.
