Petroleum Engineering Schools & Colleges in Louisiana (LA)

Louisiana is a unique state in terms of culture and produce, and is the only US state to have local parishes which have local county rights. In terms of market, this is an ethnically diverse state with diversified commodities. Seafood is a major product, as is sugarcane, cotton, rice and dairy. However, there is massive industry production, including in chemicals, coal, and petroleum. Tourism and a seaport are also major factors in determining Louisiana’s GDP.

For power, major points are in the water lands owned by the state, as well as the Outer Continental Shelf in the Gulf of Mexico. The latter is the largest production for petroleum in the country. Even if you didn’t count the OCS, the state still ranks fourth in total production of petroleum and produces about 2% of the country’s reserves. Louisiana’s natural gas makes up 5% of the US’ total, and it actually has the potential to be among the top 10 regions in the world for natural gas. Ever since the 1940s, the state has relied on petroleum drilling—so much so it had to fight the US federal government decades ago over land property rights. Ever since that time, Louisiana’s economy has boomed and not just in culture, agriculture and art, but also in industry.

Top schools in Louisiana include Louisiana State University System, Louisiana State University at Alexandria, Louisiana State University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans and the University of Louisiana System.

Louisiana petroleum engineering programs might include the Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College, which has a petroleum program listed by name, as well as the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, which also has a program listed.
