Areas of interest of the employees of the Petroleum Engineering Department are design, production and well completion, oil and gas production, hydrocarbon and geothermal reservoir development, environmental protection in petroleum engineering and energetics. 

The Department of Petroleum Engineering received funding for a two year period starting in April 2017 for the project entitled “Evaluation System for CO2 Mitigation“ lead by Assoc. Prof. Domagoj Vulin, PhD a member of the Department of Petroleum Engineering. Funding for academic research at the University of Zagreb has been granted for three projects in 2017, namely:  “Techno-economical analysis of hydrocarbons production from hydraulically fractured reservoirs” lead by Assoc. Prof. Daria Karasalihović Sedlar, PhD, “Influence of nano particles on mud properties in HTHP environment“ led by Professor Nediljka Gaurina Međimurec and “Possibility of using oil and gas reservoir aquifers for energy purposes“ led by Assoc. Prof.  Tomislav Kurevija, PhD.
Members of the Department presented their research at numerous international conferences, but special mention should be given to the participation of the Croatian branch of the Society of petroleum engineers at the SPE Annual technical conference and exhibition held in October this year in San Antonio. On this occasion, the president of the Croatian branch of the Society of Petroleum Engineers, Asst. Prof. Vladislav Brkić, PhD, and five master students, received an award for excellence in the work of the Croatian branch of the Society of Petroleum Engineers due to student chapter support.  

As in previous years, this year in July 2017 a two week summer school of Petroleum Engineering took place in cooperation with the Inter University Centre Dubrovnik (IUC). During the first week of the summer school (interactive workshop 43), two short courses were held. A course in the subject of “Business solutions for petroleum companies in the challenging global environment” was held. In the remaining days of the first week the focus shifted to “Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) & Enhanced Gas Recovery (EGR)”. In the second week three short courses were held, the first of which was dedicated to the “Future of the Natural Gas Market“, and the other two courses focused on “LNG Master Class“ and “Poromechanics & Hydraulic Fracturing“. As in previous years, the lecturers were recognised scientists and experts in their respective fields. In September this year, as a part of the Erasmus programme, members of the Department of Petroleum Engineering visited TU Bergakademie Freiberg, where they gave lectures and held seminars for students.
Throughout the academic year, the Department members have actively cooperated with the INA Ltd. Company, mainly on environmental impact studies from oil and gas exploration. To generating the aforementioned studies, the department collaborated with various higher education institutions in the Republic of Croatia (Faculty of Architecture, Faculty of Agronomy, Faculty of Forestry, all members of the University of Zagreb), as well as the State Meteorological and Hydrological Service and the Ecomission company.
In the course of the academic year, a successful doctoral thesis entitled “Optimisation of cement slurry compositions for casing cementing in carbon dioxide injection wells” under the mentorship of Prof. Nediljka Gaurina Međimurec was completed at the Department of Petroleum Engineering.
