Course content

Oil and Gas Law with Professional Skills (Campus) draws on considerable expertise from the oil and gas industry which has been located in the city since the 1970s and a long established School of Law (1495) along with regulators in the city.

Oil and gas law gives you a wide  range of knowledge to manage the affairs of international oil and gas companies, You will also learn to work within regulation and offer expertise at government level to international oil and gas companies. 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. Environment and its protection probably forms one of the most important aspects to corporate responsibility for companies operating and extracting within the minerals industry. It is vital not only to protect all living species that companies comply with regulations but it is equally essential that as an industry they adhere to the law in terms of the potential PR involved in any major incident.

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. This programme specifically allows you to acquire a portfolio of professional skills which involve extra classes and simulated practical experience. This allows you to apply your skills directly to situations involving immediate application.
