You’ll acquire a comprehensive skill set that will prepare you for employment or promotion across the oil and gas industry. Designed in collaboration with UWA’s industry partners, the course is synchronized with global energy trends, with a focus on natural gas extraction and liquefied natural gas (LNG) production. The course delivers both technical fundamentals, alongside experience with industry-leading engineering software (including Eclipse/Petrel, OLGA, Multiflash, and HYSYS).
