This course aims to provide you with an understanding of the processes, drivers, threats and opportunities related to the management of the energy and hydrocarbon industry in the 21st century. You should develop the competence to safely and effectively manage projects in the oil and gas industries within the context of increasingly stringent environmental and safety legislations. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach, and all the mandatory modules incorporate various specialist areas, including petroleum contracts and economics, renewable energy, risk management and environmental management. The modules are focused on providing some of the essential skills needed in any profession, such as project management and quality control, marketing techniques, health and safety and professional development - consultancy. You will have an opportunity to explore a subject area in more depth – for example, gaining an insight into the law of improbable incidents to help mitigate the risk of oil spills; oil trajectory analysis to help facilitate clean-up operations and develop a practical understanding of the basic energy derivative structures that are used in trading, marketing and risk management today; as well as the mechanisms and tools for both physical and financial petroleum trading and the workings of crude oil markets. You will be expected to undertake an independent research project.
This course will be assessed using a variety of methods which will could vary depending upon the module. Assessment methods include a combination of coursework assignments, in-class tests, presentations and essays.
