Content

This programme provides graduate engineers, geologists, and other scientists with specialist knowledge and understanding of the geology, performance and management of hydrocarbon reservoirs.

You will gain hands-on experience of industry-standard software (e.g. Petrel and Eclipse) in all aspects of reservoir engineering and a group design exercise provides you with an opportunity to apply a range of concepts to the appraisal of a prospect and selection of appropriate technologies and solutions for viable development and management of oil and gas fields.

Our close working relationship with local industry ensures you are given the opportunity to visit industrial facilities and receive technical presentations by working professionals, to provide further practical exposure and awareness of professional and social responsibility. Wider societal topics such ethics, sustainability and environmental issues are covered in the taught courses as appropriate.
