The Gas Energy MSc postgraduate course explores the role of energy supply from gas in the UK and abroad, both in terms of its use as an energy source and its potential for driving the UK and overseas economies.
Natural gas plays a vital role in how the UK generates heat and electricity. It is already being deployed to a significant extent and is likely to be increasingly important in the global energy mix. As conventional sources of natural gas dwindle, producers are turning to other sources such as shale gas and biogas to ensure affordable and secure supplies. This presents a tremendous opportunity to extend the lifetime of the production of affordable low carbon heat and power from gas. Major challenges still exist however with respect to production/extraction technologies, costs, environmental impacts and regulations.
This course considers issues relating to extraction, production and transmission of gas, and explores the broader aspects of gas-based energy systems - carbon capture and storage, process safety and the policy implications. Graduates can expect to be employed by producers and distributors of natural gas, energy companies and the financial sector dealing with natural gas, in technical, consultancy and management roles.
