Meet our Students

Ole Ollmann (Germany – LLM in Oil and Gas Law, now Oil, Gas and Renewable Energy Law)

Whilst working on his dissertations, Ole was offered an internship at Hapag-Lloyd AG, one of the oldest and most respected shipping companies in Germany and a leading globally operating container line. During his three month internship, Ole was involved in the day to day bunker procurement and bunker trade practice in the bunkering department. Ole was offered valuable inside into oil markets, trading and hedging practice as well as procurement strategies of a large container line. He procured bunker fuels for ships, prepared the necessary documentation and also dealt with bunker claims.

In addition, he dealt with general matters of the relevant law, such as general terms and conditions of sale and charter party terms pertaining to bunker fuel. Ole found his internship a great experience which gave him an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge gained during the LLM program. After completion of his internship, Ole moved to a permanent position in the chartering / operations department of a specialised tanker owner and operator.

Typical students include new graduates and people working in oil and gas companies, energy companies, national oil companies, engineering firms, and project service companies.

Another related complementary course is our MSc Offshore Oil and Gas Engineering which is aimed at students who wish to work in the Oil and Gas Industry with particular focus on offshore operations such as exploration, drilling and production. An advantage of these two courses is that they are designed to have the same first four stage 1 modules introducing the Oil and Gas industry so that students, having gained more understanding of the industry, can compare the courses and swap between courses during stage 1, as they decide which course they would prefer to follow in stage 2. This flexible approach offers students the advantage of more choice during their study.

Each module comprises up to 52 hours of lectures and tutorials. Significant additional private study is expected during each module.

Your programme of study

This highly regarded degree in the industry is now available to study online either full time or part time around work and other commitments you may have. The programme provides you with the same skills and knowledge as the other two programmes in courses and access to tutors but it allows you to study at a time that suits you and you can complete a dissertation also online.

Oil and gas law gives you a wide range of knowledge to manage the affairs of international oil and gas companies within the full spectrum of law careers plus the knowledge to work within regulation and offer expertise in case law developments within the various environmental laws involved at government level. This is a specialist area of environmental law in which you study the hydrocarbon industry in terms of corporate liability and responsibility, downstream energy law, investment and arbitration law which is relevant when working with other companies on high risk exploration areas. This is an internationally relevant programme due to the nature and operations of the oil and gas industry.

Courses offered cover licensing and other methods of state control of hydrocarbon resources, commercial contracting, regulation of the oil and gas industry, principles of environmental law and maritime planning. The intention is that by the end of the programme you will have developed the analytical skills and knowledge to provide you with a firm foundation for work in this sector. The programme provides you with the opportunity to examine and critically assess key legal issues in the oil and gas sector both in the UK and in other leading jurisdictions.
