If you are interested in how countries manage risk associated with conflict in society, peace-building, defence and policies, business and organisational risk in different countries and the current and future challenges to stability within different countries and regions of the world and your special interest is energy you will be interested in this programme which is dedicated to combining the two areas.  Aberdeen is well known as an energy centre globally and it provides more FTSE 100 companies than many cities due to its connections with the energy industry. Many companies have located their headquarters in Aberdeen and other energy centres include Houston, Texas, plus newer global centres situated around new forms of extraction and nearby centres of population. Managing existing industry and new infrastructure can be very challenging in many respects.  Areas for mineral extraction can be isolated and remote or within areas of the world which are also in conflict. In this situation risk needs to be fully understood to support continuous supply.

You study energy security, fossil fuels adaptation, and the complexities of strategy involved in the energy industry with many learning's from other industries. This programme gives you the knowledge, theory and analysis skills to enable you to work in the energy industry and provide advice about risk. You learn the complex issues involved in setting up new energy extraction facilities and managing existing infrastructure in very challenging environments.

Your programme of study

Are you interested in where we source our future energy and how we protect what we have now and in the future? Do you have environmental concerns about how energy is extracted and what regulation is in place to prevent damage to the environment?  This programme focuses on two main interlinked areas within energy management of politics and law.  Within the political setting you understand regulation as you do in the legal setting but you look at policies, regulation and interdependencies and relationships globally to understand how risk, security and future policy may alter and how this then translates in law. There is a heightened senses of awareness now within energy and climate and an increased sense of urgency about pollution controls and concerns about energy reserves.  This is set within a volatile political and social environment in many countries some of whom supply energy globally. You look at historical oil crisis, security, and politics and you connect this to environmental regulation systems, and the different legal systems and approaches in law.

This programme gives you a wide breadth of skills and knowledge in an essential area of the energy industry, both upstream and downstream, commercial and domestic globally. You are taught in the energy capital of Europe in Aberdeen city, home to a multitude of FTSE 100 companies from the energy industry and you learn from both its learning's and that of academics who follow it closely at Aberdeen. There is a lot of historic case law and knowledge gained from the energy industry which has influenced energy law over time and much of it has related to the tightening of mechanisms and regulation to prevent environmental damage from occurring. There are also economic influences on the energy industry which can rapidly alter the economics of countries when suppliers change prices, lower or raise production or change group agreements. Even within the domestic market energy suppliers continue to influence the prices we pay for our domestic energy which can in turn affect domestic economics within countries.

You can work as a lawyer or regulator across the supply chain from source to domestic energy or you can work as a consultant or advisor within policy. Within the energy industry itself you can be a vital part of project initiation in understanding policy, guidance, risks and laws to support growth alongside social and legal responsibility to ensure integrity in all areas of energy extraction.
