– About Natural Gas Technology

Major challenges with natural gas are the large distances between the production and consumption sites and gas technology, which limits the emission of CO2. A large part of the remaining resources are also in offshore reserves, requiring safe technology for subsea production systems.

Study Natural Gas Technology

This master's degree programme is linked with a cluster of three different master programmes; Petroleum Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Natural Gas Technology. These programmes aim at covering the whole value chain for natural gas, including exploration and production, processing, liquefaction, transport, conversion to chemicals, power generation and heating.

The Natural gas technology program offers a quite wide selection of courses within the mechanical engineering aspects of the value chain. Techno-economic optimization is included for the whole value chain. Technologies for carbon dioxide capture and storage is emphasized in the processing and conversion steps of the value chain.

A wide range of specializations

  • Process Integration
  • Multiphase flows
  • Gas processing and LNG
  • Gas value chain from well to user
  • Combustion and energy conversion
  • Thermal Turbo Machinery
  • Thermal power Cycles, including C02 capture
  • Computation and simulation methods
