Course objectives
The aim of the course is to cover basic technological and economic principles of the oil and gas industry. The main attention is focused on introducing the important features of technology and economics for conducting an energy-focused research or assessing an energy policy. The course thus deals mostly with three main areas: the relation between energy and economy/society, the production chain and how the energy commodities are marketed.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students should be able to include issues beyond social science into their understanding of the energy matters.
