The MSc program in Petroleum Logistics is of 2 years duration (120 ECTS credits, 4 semesters), and consists of 90 credits course work, and a master's thesis of 30 credits. The language of instruction is English. 2016 will be the second year of admission to this MSc program.
Logistics deals with the organization of the flow of products, services and information from raw materials to end products. For a large number of industrial and business companies, achieving high quality logistics operations will be the key competitive factor for future success. Oil and gas companies are no exception from this.
The MSc program in Petroleum Logistics focuses on Logistics, but with a greater emphasis on courses related to the oil and gas industry. The program aims at giving a thorough analysis and understanding of problems, challenges and solutions associated with all parts of the supply chains dealing with the oil and gas industry, on-shore as well as off-shore: Exploration, purchasing, Production planning, Inventory management and downstream distribution planning. Along with knowledge of a broad range of logistics topics, the program gives an understanding of the energy situation in the world comparing existing renewable energy sources, as well as non-renewable sources both in terms of costs, qualities and availability.
