The aims of this course are:
1. to provide an opportunity to study large-scale examples of a wide spectrum of reservoir phenomena, and to evaluate them in the context of petroleum engineering and cognate areas of petroleum geoscience within the economic context of the hydrocarbon industry; and
2. to undertake and complete the 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.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||60 credits (30 ECTS credits)|
The Project is the culmination of the previous taught courses of the Petroleum Engineering MSc. It will require integration of different elements and assumes a general knowledge of theoretical aspects of reservoir engineering. The project subject can be from any aspect of reservoir engineering. It is assumed,but not essential, that many students will work on their projects in the offices of the company which offered the topic and which is providing data.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
