Oil and Gas Engineering Autumn 2015

This term saw the introduction of a brand new style of module which took advantage of the considerable expertise available to us because of our many links with the industry in the Southern North Sea.

Mark Hewett, Peter Haynes, Alex Tollefson (pictured), Ken Woolley and Barry Ridley, with combined experience of around 150 years in the oil and gas industry, developed and delivered a module that included both plans for developing a field and reservoir analysis, design of well casings, risk and human factors on everything from Piper Alpha to Macondo, and asset integrity management.
