 The Master of Petroleum Engineering offers a classical two-year training in French and a one year training in English for graduate students. The one-year class ‘Petroleum Engineering Reinforcement’ (~350 h lecture and 5-6 month internship) will be particularly appreciated by foreign students who wish to reinforce their background in different fields of Petroleum Engineering.

 This Master benefits from a particularly rich environment in geosciences and energy.

 The Master is part of the Faculty of Sciences and Technologies for Energy and Environment (STEE).

 The STEE Faculty has been founded within the framework of the prestigious label I-SITE which granted the project Energy Environment Solutions (E2S).

The master also benefits from the immediate surroundings of Carnot ISIFOR (Sustainable Engineering of Georesources) and a national pole for Geosciences and Innovation (Avenia). In addition, Pau hosts dozens of Petroleum companies, including Total, Terega, Modis, etc... Pau has therefore one of the highest concentration of petroleum engineers and scientists in France.

Objectives

The "Petroleum Engineering Reinforcement" training program aims to complete the initial training of petroleum engineers with specific competences in geosciences, reservoir engineering and oil and gas production.

This personalized one-year training program is composed of courses selected from the three paths of the two-year Master program:


The geosciences path offers an integrated approach, which includes:

  • Geological characterization (basin analysis, reservoir characterization, structural and sedimentological)
  • Geophysical characterization (acquisition, processing and interpretation of seismic data)
  • Well Analysis (well logging and seismic)

The reservoir path proposes:

  • To evaluate the deposits discovered
  • To optimize their development as well as their production

The production path aims to train specialized executives in the field of oil and gas production and in the evaluation of the associated processing needs.

"First-year Master's degree Promotion"

Knowledge and skills

At the end of this program, according to their optional choices, the students in the “Petroleum Engineering Reinforcement Master” will be able to:

Geosciences path :

  • Acquire, process and interpret geological and geophysical data,

Reservoirs path:

  • Contribute to the operational development and production of traditional reservoirs (simulation of reservoirs) and unconventional reservoirs (enhanced recovery),

Production path:

  • Select subsurface and surface facility equipment to produce oil and gas well fluids,
  • Optimize oil and gas production, in petrochemical laboratories to study and characterize the produced fluids
  • Use new technologies related to production of unconventional oils.
