Global energy consumption is growing rapidly as the world is developing. However, oil and gas resources will be much less accessible in future, and far more advanced technology will be required to extract them. This means that the future hydrocarbon production will deal with unconventional resources, such as shales, gas hydrates and tar sands; it will take place in deep waters, or it will occur in “difficult” regions such as the Arctic region. The petroleum industry therefore needs more highly qualified engineers specializing in a wide range of areas.
