Exploration and Production of Petroleum

The module objective is to provide a broad understanding of the petroleum industry, as a foundation for more advanced work and as a context and background. Areas that are covered include the sources of petroleum, the geological context, how petroleum is discovered, how it is produced and transported, the environmental, historical and societal impact of petroleum, and the special problems of production deep water and in the Arctic. Care is taken to go into some problem areas in depth, so that the module is more than just a superficial survey.
