Course summary

An oil and gas specific Chemistry degree from Europe's oil and gas capital. Chemistry contributes in many ways to the oil and gas industry. Geochemists are intimately involved in the exploration phase. Materials used in production such as oil well and pipeline components, chemicals to aid oil recovery, filters and other aids to product purification, corrosion inhibitors etc., are developed by synthetic chemists.Performance monitoring is undertaken by analytical chemists. Environmental chemists deal with all of the environmental consequences of oil and gas production. Lifetime issues such as corrosion and corrosion protection also require input from chemists. The eventual decommissioning of offshore platforms, or their possible conversion to other uses such as wind farms or wave energy collectors, will raise many new problems requiring chemical solutions.For the degree programme you will study courses in Chemistry, Physics, Geology and Environmental Science in year 1, Chemistry, Materials Science and Geology in year 2, and Chemistry in years 3 to 4. Your project work in year 4 will involve research work on some aspect of offshore chemistry.
