Master in Oil and Gas: Exploration, Production and Management

1 - Experts in Reservoir Engineering (Upstream):

This program trains professionals in petroleum engineering with a focus on reservoir engineering.

As reservoir engineers, they are able to describe the reservoir and to understand its behavior through data acquisition, interpretation and integration considering: rock characterization, fluids characterization and fluid flow in porous media.

Consequently, they contribute, in collaboration with geoscientists, to evaluate volumes of hydrocarbons in place and they state on the natural production mechanisms.

Starting from the understanding of the reservoir, they propose an economically optimized development strategy of hydrocarbon fields and they evaluate the associated reserves and production profile. To do so, they are able to use tools such as dynamic reservoir simulation.

They highlight uncertainties and their impacts on the evaluation of field performances.

They are able to describe drilling activities, well performances and surface facilities for processing and transportation of oil and gas.

Security and environmental issues are also of their concern. They identify the main risks associated to operations and the risk mitigation options.

2- Experts in Petroleum Economics and Management (Downstream):

This program trains also experts to study the market structure and price mechanism: Changes in market structure, strategy of exporting countries and its impact on prices, global demand and the rise of emerging countries (Brazil, Russia, China, India, etc..), speculation and its impact on the price of oil in short term, the outlook for the coming years, economic recovery and rising of oil prices, the risk, competitive environment and arrival of new entrants and new aggressive strategies, behaviors of petroleum countries, competitors and different business practices, security of supply, regional and international legal aspects, the economic growth, transportation costs, etc. ....
