Program Overview
1.1

Program presentation

The Institute of Petroleum Studies (IPS) is an international post graduate institution established through collaboration between IFP School (France) and the University of Port Harcourt (Nigeria) in the year 2002. IFP School in France has for many years established international collaboration and partnership with world-renowned Universities in different parts of the world (Imperial College of Science & Technology, London (UK); Colorado School of Mines (USA); Texas A & M (USA); Oklahoma University (USA); McGill University (Canada); Technical University Delft (Netherlands) and Universit Gubkin (Russia)). This brings together different cultures, academic programs and technology applications. Through its association with IFP School, IPS now belongs to this international consortium of Institutions. 1.2

Program Objective

The University of Port Harcourt and Institut Franais du Ptrole have associated their experience in teaching and research in the fields of petroleum exploration, reservoir characterisation, petroleum engineering and field management to create a Master's degree dedicated to petroleum engineering and project development. The oil industry is greatly interested in increasing knowledge and integrating know-how into the architecture and management of petroleum reservoirs, in view of a more efficient recovery. For this reason, oil companies, service companies and governmental agencies are looking for professionals able to join efficiently multidisciplinary teams associated in oil or gas field development and management. The Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering and Project Development is designed to develop professional engineers with a high level of competency in drilling, reservoir engineering, well production and process. It prepares engineers with a good and sound knowledge of the basics of petroleum engineering and capable of fast adaptation to the needs of the Petroleum Industry. By associating Nigerian and European cultures the program also prepares the student to work in an international environment, as required now by the oil industry. Upon Completion of this program the graduates will be able to: Master the basic techniques needed to properly evaluate and manage oil and gas fields. Design and supervise the drilling of producing wells in an efficient way. Carry well maintenance programs to improve hydrocarbon recovery, design work over and stimulation programs. Master the basic techniques needed to design and realise hydrocarbon-producing facilities from well head to loading terminal. (On and Offshore) Carry out Production optimisation and field performance enhanced programs.

Organisation of the Institute

The Institute of Petroleum Studies (IPS) is situated within the University of Port Harcourt in Choba (Rivers State). It is managed by both UNIPORT and the IFP School in France through a close collaboration between the Director of the Institute (appointed by UNIPORT) and the co-ordinator (appointed by IFP School) Teachers will either come from IFP School or UNIPORT or will be specialist engineers from the Oil industry. Courses will be held in English. The Institute will provide students with efficient computer hardware and software similar to what can be found within the oil companies. Admission requirement: For admission into the program candidates must possess a minimum Second Class (Upper Division) honours Bachelors Degree in Engineering. Engineers with 5 years working experience in the petroleum industry who graduated with Second Class (Lower Division) honours Bachelors degree will also be considered. Award of Degree: Successful students at the end of the program shall receive a Masters Degree jointly awarded by the IFP School, France and the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), Nigeria. 1.4

Teaching Methods

Duration: The program will extend over a 46 weeks full time study and be devised in 5 Modules: General Module (6 weeks) Geosciences & Reservoir Module (12 weeks) Drilling Module (12 weeks) Production Module (9 weeks) Project Module (7 weeks) 1.5

Degree Awarded

After successful completion of the course, graduates will receive a Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering and Project Development. This degree will be jointly awarded by UNIPORT, Nigeria and IFP School, France and is credited 51 credits hours corresponding to 92 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System). One course corresponds to 1 credit hours. Using the European standards one course is also called UE (Unit of Education). The European Credit Transfer System (nammed ECTS) is used for European students. It is based on the student's workload required for completing successfully the academic program objectives. These objectives are based on examination results and competencies gained. Summary of the requirements to get the Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering and Project Development is given in the following table:

Courses Schedules and Hours:

The courses will be given 5 days a week from Monday to Friday. 6 Hours of daily course: From 8:00 to 12:00 (with a hour break). From 13:00 to 16:00 (with a hour break). The Institute will be open daily from 08:00 AM to 17:30 PM and students will be allowed outside the courses hours to review their studies, consult documents or books, and work on computers. Each Saturday morning an examination on the course covered during the week will take place. Re-sit of failed exams will be organised on Saturday afternoon. Final Projects: A three weeks final project on Field Development Project (FDP) will terminate the Program. This Teamwork will be a synthesis study covering all the aspects of the petroleum engineering. The Field Development Project study will be organised in work groups and will be managed by specialist engineers from the oil industry. This method will familiarise the students with teamwork spirit that is needed in the industry. The Industrial Project (Industrial Thesis) is an independent study by students to find engineered solutions to oilfiled problems. The projects are supervised by Lecturers from the University of Port Harcourt and industrial experts. Computer Software: Most widely used specialised software (as used by the industry) will be available to the students for practice. Project Presentations/Seminars: Both the industrial projects and Field Development Projects are presented to examination boards made up of lecturers from IFP School, Uniport and industry experts. The presentation takes the form of Seminar/Technical Forum.
