This programme provides a broad training in oil industry matters; especially those pertaining to how relatively small oil companies can work with National Oil Companies (NOCs) and energy ministries to better exploit their hydrocarbon resources. In this respect training in commercialisation, economics and law is included, as is an understanding of how science and technology can be applied at the cutting edge to improve hydrocarbon exploration success and recovery.

The programme aims to develop the conceptual and empirical knowledge, analytical skills and understanding of the business development process in the oil and gas industry. It encompasses modules in the latest technology in Geology, Geophysical and Engineering disciplines. The emphasis is on practical application of studies, lateral thinking and management techniques. The first term covers science and technology issues of hydrocarbon commercialisation, and the second term focuses on business, law, politics and economics.

The course concludes with project work conducted over the second 6 month period.

The MSc in Oil and Gas Enterprise Management covers a broad range subjects and courses in order to encompass all the aspects related with the oil industry environment. Students will be presented with all of the business drivers in these areas of technology, from exploration, appraisal through production and decommissioning. World experts in all of these areas of expertise are on our doorstep in Aberdeen. Environmental, human and cultural impact of the oil industry is presented, and safety engineering and issues, using a series of case studies, is included. Students will be expected to research beyond each of these areas and produce papers reviewing aspects of technology and how it impacts on the business.

The programme also includes entrepreneurship, negotiating and presentation skills, petroleum law and contracts, petroleum economics and accountancy. Highly trained individuals with an international experience unparalleled in any other research centre teach these areas. The emphasis will be on practical application of studies, lateral thinking and management techniques. The programme includes broader issues of security and conflict, by addressing and assessing risk in operating in the Middle East - Caspian Sea ellipse.

Assessment will comprise many practical exercises and research papers and essays, where students can access information from a wide array of sources, including Oil Industry journals, periodicals and other papers which are available to them.
Many of the courses include 'games' spread over several days which require team and negotiating skills, as well as a knowledge of technology and economics, which draw the various courses together. Team-building, geological fieldwork, and offshore safety course are all part of the course.

The Oil Industry has very strong links with the Department of Geology and Petroleum Geology. We take advantage of our position as the European Oil Capital by organising a series of excursions to examine aspects of the Oil Industry and the geology of the North Sea.

Lectures and classes are held in locations across the campus.

Students have a dedicated classroom in Meston building and classes are held in this room and across the campus. In the dedicated classroom, students have access to PCs, colour and monochrome laser printers and scanner. The PCs have a wide variety of specialist and standard software installed.

The Department is also home to The Halliburton Suite, a 3D visualisation facility which allows seismic data, gathered from surveys of the earth’s crust, to be viewed in 3D enabling geoscientists to examine and map the internal structure of the earth’s crust, to improve the understanding of its evolution, and to study methods involved in oil and gas exploration.

Students also have access to the other departmental facilities as required.
