You’ll acquire a comprehensive skill set that will prepare you for employment or promotion across the oil and gas industry. Designed in collaboration with UWA’s industry partners, the course is synchronised with global energy trends, with a focus on natural gas extraction and liquefied natural gas (LNG) production. The course delivers both technical fundamentals, alongside experience with industry-leading engineering software (including Eclipse/Petrel, OLGA, Multiflash, and HYSYS).
You’ll develop professional skills in a range of key areas including petroleum engineering, gas economics, investment strategies and liabilities, workflow concepts, and current production and processing technologies. A particular focus is placed on natural gas and both its extraction and subsequent conversion to liquefied natural gas (LNG). Business-orientated units will cover the principles of project planning and project management within the managerial context of the oil and gas industry. You’ll also produce a variety of written technical reports and business proposals, and participate in group projects, including a unique field hydrocarbon development design project. During your studies, you’ll benefit from close interaction with our leading academics and their links to industry.
