Course content

There are three blocks of seminars. The first block of seminars, LOG904-PTA"Research Methods in Logistics" covers theoretical topics that have not been covered in other courses, namely:

  • integer Optimization Models in Logistics
  • game Theory
  • research Design

In the second block called LOG904-PTB "Basic problems of Petroleum Logistics", the seminars are very specialized, covering basic topics related to different parts of the petroleum and energy supply chain such as:

  • energy Logistics
  • logistics in Petroleum Production
  • gas Transportation Infrastructure Planning
  • simulation in Petroleum Logistics

The third block, LOG904-PTC "Offshore Oil and Gas Logistics", covers theoretical or practical aspects of topics that are important to offshore oil and gas logistics:

  • upstream Offshore Oil and Gas Logistics
  • supply Base Management
  • health, Safety and Environment for the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry

The seminars in these blocks are compulsory for master's degree students.

The seminar LOG904-100 Proposal (5 credits) is a plan for the master's thesis. The students should work out the proposal in close colloboration with their supervisor. The proposal includes the preparation and presentation (written and oral) of the actual thesis in the fourth semester. The seminar "Proposal" will always be presented at the end of the other LOG904-PET seminars.

Learning outcome

After finishing the seminar series, the students will obtain a broader and deeper level of skills and understanding in several subject areas relevant to petroleum logistics planning and management. Beyond the background established through the completion of the first year of the MSc program in logistics, the seminar series will provide additional theoretical and applied knowledge that will help the students in the research part for the master's thesis.

Working and learning activities

Each seminar is usually taught Monday to Friday in one week. Usually, the instruction will consist of lectures, assignments, group work and discussions. Attendance is mandatory to all classes.

Curriculum

There will be hand-outs and special material for each seminar. This will be decided by the lecturer responsible for each seminar.
