GL5907: PROJECT IN INTEGRATED PETROLEUM GEOSCIENCES (2016-2017)

Last modified: 16 Nov 2016 17:57


Course Overview

In the final project you are expected to undertake and complete a study of a problem applicable to the petroleum industry. The project is an extended, independent, self-directed, piece of practical work integrating and reinforcing the material taught on the course, and giving a detailed insight into the demands of, and ways of working in the hydrocarbon industry. The project forms the major part of the IPG’s employability strategy.

Course Description

The project is the cumlmination of the previous taught courses of the Integrated Petroleum Geoscience MSc. It will require integration of different elements and assumes a general knowledge of all aspects of petroleum geology.
The project subject can be from any aspect of exploration through to production geoscience. We have an excellent record with local oil companies for working on highly topical and relevant projects. Commonly, the projects are constructed around current problems the companies consider deserve attention, but for which they are short of personnel. These projects usually are of a research nature, and without exception are entirely original and have not been worked on before. It is common, but not essential, that the student work on their projects in the offices of the company which offered the topic and which is providing the data.
