Andhra Pradesh is home to one of the biggest petroleum basins of the world, the KG-basin. The basin runs along the coastal region of the state, and is just 30 kms away from ADITYA. Taking advantage of having major oil and gas corporations as neighbors, ADITYA was the first to introduce B. Tech in Petroleum Technology in the state. The department of Petroleum technology was established in the year 2010 with an intake of 60. Moreover, in the year 2014 a post-graduation program on Petroleum engineering was started with an intake of 18. It is one of the potential department for Petroleum engineering courses in the heart of KG- Basin, which provides exposure to students for both the streams of Petroleum Engineering Viz. Upstream and Downstream, which includes the fundamentals of Earth Sciences, Heat and Mass Transfer, Drilling, Well logging and Reservoir engineering, Petroleum refining and about Renewables energy. The regular patronage of distinguished visiting faculties from corporations such as, ONGC, RIL, GSPC, OIL, IOCL, Schlumberger, Halliburton, Cairn Energy and GAIL added to the existing bench of qualified and skilled regular faculty members in the department and make it one of the strongest department in the neighborhood offering academics as well as practical skills. Since the inception of petroleum technology department every year we are conducting a National Level Technical Fest in the name of “PETROSPIRIT”
