You will study core modules covering the fundamental science and engineering topics related to petroleum production, in addition to selecting from a range of optional modules which allows you to tailor your specialisation in Petroleum Production Engineering.
Your Petroleum Production Engineering programme from University of Leeds will be taught through a series of lectures, seminars, tutorials and applied practicals, enabling you to become proficient in Petroleum Production Engineering practice. As part of our drilling and production modules you will learn through doing, working in teams to execute different drilling and production strategies. Your learning experience will be enhanced by our virtual reality training environment, engaging with industry experts who deliver seminars on current industry challenges, guest lectures from our alumni members discussing life in industry, and visits to production facilities across the UK.
You will undertake a research project with a petroleum engineering academic. Typical projects have included smart water for enhanced oil recovery, asphaltene dispersancy and deposit removal, characterizing permeability and porosity of shale and tight sandstone, and hybrid surfaces for corrosion inhibition. You will be able to choose from a wide range of research topics or alternatively propose your own research topic relating to a challenge in petroleum production.
With a Masters degree in Petroleum Production Engineering, you could expect to pursue a successful career in the oil and gas industries. This includes a wide range of areas such as field engineering, production drilling engineering, pipeline and transportation logistics, refinery operations and management, refinery control and optimisation, and sales and marketing.
