This course provides detailed understanding of the methodologies and relevant engineering science and technology for efficient and safe production of oil and gas.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||10 credits (5 ECTS credits)|
This course will cover fluid flow and behaviour in the well bore, with emphasis on factors which inhibit oil and gas production as well as practical approaches to production enhancement. Computer modelling of oil and gas production is introduced. Safety and ability to respond to changing situations are emphasised. A range of industry relevant case studies are used to support students’ learning.
This is the total time spent in lectures, tutorials and other class teaching.
1 three-hour written examination paper (90%), continuous assessment (10%).
The continuous assessment will be based on computer simulation of oil and gas production using industry standard software.
Resit: 1 three-hour written examination paper (90%) and the continuous assessment mark from the first attempt (10%).
There are no assessments for this course.
a) Assessment grade and feedback comments will be provided on the coursework report.b) Students can receive feedback on their progress with the Course on request at the weekly tutorial/feedback sessions.
