My internship was in DOSCO SA Co. was organized by Oil and Gas University from Ploiesti in Romania, within Erasmus+ project GOPELC, in the period between 3 June and 18 July 2017. DOSCO Petro services has over 35 years of experience in providing customers with quality rental equipment, supplies and services for the Oil & Gas industry. A schedule was made for the training days containing theoretical lectures, tours in the company’s base, and visits to near fields. Supervisors provide some lectures and talks introducing the drilling industry, BHA and down hole tools, drilling fluid and cementing, fishing and milling tools, BOPs, and emergency response planning. In the company’s base, we were introduced to drilling equipment (bits, collars, centralizers, stabilizers and drilling jars), fishing tools, pressure control equipment (BOP, manifolds …), tubular handling tools (elevators, tongs…). We visited hammering job to set the conductor casing to a new well. We also visited a drilling rig in a nearby field and saw the drilling components. At the end of the internship a project was handled to the supervisor. It was really a good experience.

It describes the internship I spent at the Asset 6 Muntenia (production site) in Romania. OMV Petrom oil and gas group was in charge for this site, where it is the largest oil and gas group in Southeastern Europe and the main crude oil producer in Romania. The report includes an introduction about the OMV Petrom Company. Then I discuss the production in the Asset 6 Muntenia (production site). The primary recovery there was aided by means of sucker rod pumps, linear rod pumps and Lufkin hydraulic pump, where we visited several sites equipped by these pumps, and we were instructed on how these artificial lift systems work. The secondary recovery was mainly based on water injection, where the complete injection cycle applied in the site was described to us the trainees in Park 41 Bajeasca and Park 3 Dragomiresti. Concerning the tertiary recovery or EOR, we visited the Clayton steam generator where the steam generated by steam generators are transported and distributed by pipelines to steam injectors. We also were given the opportunity to visit several types of parks, the MP-skid park such in Park 260, the automated park, the modernized park such as Park 40 Hulubesti and the old parks, we were shown the working principal in each type of these parks.


I would like to thank Prof. Catalin Popescu and Prof. Lazar Avram, Coordinators of GOPELC Erasmus PLUS Project at UPG, for the well organization of this internship and taking care of us during our stay in Romania. And I am especially indebted to Dr. Bassam Riachi, Chairman of Chemical & Petrochemical Department at ULFG-3, who has been supportive and gave me the great opportunity to take part in this project.

This work would not have been possible without the help of each and every member of the 3 companies (PETROM – DOSCO – CONPET) whom I had the pleasure to work with. They have provided me extensive personal and professional guidance and taught me a great deal about the petroleum different sectors. And I would like to express my gratitude especially to Eng. Baciu Alexandru Razvan and Eng. Nastase Madalin at ‘PETROM’, Eng. Dan Radacina and Eng. Gheorghe Dima at ‘DOSCO’, Dr. Gheorghe Ionescu (Director of transport operations), Monica Stoica and Mihaele Podeanu at ‘CONPET’.
