This programme delivers a solid comprehension of engineering principles as they are specifically applied in oil and gas production. The six detailed course modules are sequentially designed to build up core knowledge, providing a systematic approach for students to acquire essential understanding of oil and gas production terminology and basic engineering equations, procedures, and models.
This module defines the basic components of integrated petroleum production systems.
The module describes different types of well completion before illustrating the operations such as separation used to process and purify oil and gas.
This module gives detailed explanations of the numerous flow assurance methods used to maximise production.
This module shows how to minimise the effects of formation damage on the permeability of the porous media.
Continuing the focus on increasing the flow of oil and gas from the well, this module examines the main methods of artificial lift, describing how they are selected for different scenarios.
This module highlights the key differences between onshore and offshore operations, finishing with an analysis of the ever-critical issues relating to health, safety and the environment.

The course is very detailed and career orientated, and I have gained numerous benefits from having undertaken it. The material is highly informative and it was a pleasure to have the insight of the course director Dr Shedid - an expert in the petroleum field"
The Fundamentals of Oil & Gas Production Engineering course will be of great benefit to non-technical personnel needing to understand how petroleum production can be maximised in the field.
It is also ideal for petroleum engineers, process engineers, development geologists, oilfield production managers and field engineers who need more specialised knowledge of production engineering.
Consultant & Professor of Petroleum Engineering
Dr. Shedid has more than 24 years experience as a professor and consultant in oil and gas engineering. He has conducted consultation and research projects in the USA, Australia, Egypt, and the UAE. He has written two books and published numerous scientific papers developing and analysing new techniques and industry models to solve real industry problems.
We welcome companies placing individual students or groups on any of our publicly advertised distance learning courses, or for larger corporate groups we will deliver to your individual requirements, including instructor lead training, blended delivery solutions, customised assessments, flexible time-scales and dedicated support for learning and development managers.
A rich overview of Oil and gas Production Engineering, very insightful
