Petroleum Engineering Technology (Diploma)

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: College of the North Atlantic
Training Center(s): Bonavista, Carbonear, Clarenville, Gander, Labrador City, St. Anthony, St. Johns, Stephenville, Canada

The reliance upon fossil fuels, particularly oil and gas, to supply Canada&,#146,s growing industrial and domestic requirements has increased rapidly during the past decade. However, the increasing world demands for these fuels and the growing uncertainty of traditional sources of supply have intensified Canada&,#146,s commitment to become self sufficient in its fossil energy needs. With sustained discoveries of oil and gas resources, along the east coast and in the Arctic regions, and with proper management and development policies, this goal may be attainable. Continued oil and gas discoveries on the Grand Banks off Newfoundland have intensified interest and activities in the science and technology of developing these reservoirs. The three year program leading to the Diploma of Technology is designed to train technologists for all aspects of the oil and gas industry.
