The program will provide the latest technical knowledge on upstream, production, and downstream aspects of oil and gas engineering. The program will also address serious issues faced by the oil and gas industries, such as sustainable development, environmental protection, risk, reliability and safety. In addition, the program will cover drilling engineering, phase behavior of petroleum fluid, production engineering, compact process equipment design, offshore environmental operations, and natural gas engineering.
The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science has standing expertise in the main disciplines of engineering (mechanical, civil, naval architecture, and electrical and computer engineering) as well as three chemical engineering faculty members with expertise in oil/gas processing, environmental operations, health and safety, and risk assessment. In addition, three Canada Research Chairs have been appointed in the areas of Reservoir Engineering; Reliability Engineering and Offshore Environmental Management; and Asset Integrity Management.
