University of Bergen 's Reservoir Mechanics program combines the classical natural sciences, physics, mathematics and chemistry with geology and provides a solid theoretical basis for working with problems based in oil and gas recovery. 


Key facts

The goal of University of Bergen 's Reservoir Mechanics program is to exploit research and expertise from both the university sector and external research environments, to educate graduates with technological expertise that is well suited for work in the oil industry and i industry and management that requires expertise in quantitative modeling. Since the program is interdisciplinary, it will provide a good basis for working as a teacher.

Development and analysis of mathematical / numerical computational tools are essential to create simulation models for multi phase-flow in a reservoir. Simulation models are used in the industry when considering if the reservoir can be exploited commercially and in planning of drilling. Such models can be created with existing simulation tools or by developing own code (for example, by means of Matlab).

Programme Structure
