Study Abroad: Romania – Day 4

Written by Sergio Gomez Mejia

Tuesday, January 9th – Day 4

Today, we arrived at Ploiesti University of Petroleum and Gas for our second day of class. Before starting class, we had lunch in the university restaurant called the Canteen. After lunch we walked around the university and saw some old equipment used in the oil and gas industry which were located around the university.

As soon as we finished the short explanation of the equipment by Dr. Teodoriu, we walked to the classroom for our second lecture.  First, we learned about different types of engines, their classification and history.  During the second part of the lecture we learned about drilling rig systems. Classroom time ended with a detailed explanation of the circulatory system in a drilling rig.  We ended our day with a quiet dinner in one of our favorite Romanian restaurant, the Dublin Pub.
