Oil and Gas Engineering

The oil and gas industry is continuously developing and is therefore both recognised and expected to remain as a major contributor to the economy of many developed and developing regions as it continues to be driven not only by new oil and gas discoveries, but by a constant demand to find newer, safer, more efficient and cost-effective ways of extracting resources. Whilst exploration continues to identify major oil and gas finds across the world, these are increasingly less accessible and require complex engineering solutions to deliver effective operations and supply. Additionally, the significant and rising operating costs of existing installations are driving the sector to seek suitably qualified engineers are able to support operations and initiate improvements within the 4 main strands of oil and gas facilities: offshore, onshore, sub-sea and pipelines.
