Recovery, production and refining of oil and gas is still world wide a very important industry and will keep on being so for many years ahead. Society as is dependents on oil for production of pharmaceuticals, materials, solvents, ingredients etc. and will even in a transition towards biomass based production be the backbone raw material of almost everything we use in our daily day. Specialize your Chemical Engineering degree in Oil and Gas Technology and turn production more sustainable. We need a future, where oil and gas resources are used in a smart way, carbon is recovered and reused to the fullest extent possible and not wasted on fuel combustion with related CO2 emissions.

You will focus on the processing of the production fluids above the seabed and the separation of the oil and gas from the significant and increasing amounts of water produced from the subsurface. You will learn the processes used to purify the oil and gas products and the treatment of the produced water. The holistic focus of your education will be to increase the sustainability of the production by optimizations and introduction of new processes and concepts aimed at better separation, reducing the use of chemicals, reducing the need of flaring and increasing the level of produced water treatment and preventing discharge of chemicals to the sea.
