This course is a broad introduction to oil and gas development. It conveys a background understanding of the origins of oil and gas, how subsurface developments are decided and how these link with the selection of the surface facilities development.
Primary surface oil and gas production systems are covered including export systems from pipelines to oil terminals and tankers.
Both onshore and offshore production systems are described and the offshore systems include fixed structures, floating systems and subsea systems.
The course includes an introduction to the basic principles of project development including handling uncertainties, HSE and managing risk. It also provides a basic understanding of the role of operations in managing the reservoir, wells and facilities through field life.
