Specialisation in Oil and Gas Technology


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The project will typically focus on one of the following subjects

  • Enhanced oil recovery methods
  • Petrophysical characterization of reservoirs 
  • Modelling and design of oil and gas related processestechnology
  • Process units and application of process simulators to oil and gas related processes

Learning objectives


Students who have passed the module should be able to

  • account for the theoretical basics of oil and gas technology


  • execute laboratory experiments
  • apply physico-chemical models to oil and gas problems
  • analyze data from experimental work and simulations on oil and gas production
  • write an electronic project report following the standards of the field of study, include relevant original scientific literature, use the correct terminology, and communicate the research-based foundation and problem and results in writing, graphically and orally in a professionally reasoned and coherent way
  • use relevant software to present, analyze and visualize theories, hypotheses and data in writing as well as orally
  • assess and select relevant original scientific literature and current scientific methods, models and other tools used in the project and asses the problem of the project and results in relevant scientific and social contexts


  • select and combine experimental and theoretical methods, as appropriate, in order to solve complex problems in oil and gas technology
  • critically review the methods used and the results obtained on the project work
  • handle the planning, implementation and management of complex and unpredictable research and/or developmental tasks and take professional responsibility to implement academic assignments and interdisciplinary collaborations
  • take responsibility for own professional development and specialization
