Logistics deals with the organization of the flows of products, services and information from raw materials to the end user. For a large number of industrial and business companies, achieving high quality logistics operations will be the key competitive factor for future success. Oil and gas companies are no exception from this.

The MSc programme in Petroleum Logistics focuses on Logistics, but with a greater emphasis on courses related to the oil and gas industry. The programme aims to give a thorough analysis and understanding of problems, challenges and solutions associated with all parts of the supply chains dealing with the oil and gas industry on-shore as well as off-shore: exploration, purchasing, production planning, inventory management and downstream distribution planning.

Along with knowledge of a broad range of logistics topics, the programme will give an understanding of the energy situation in the world comparing existing renewable energy sources as well as non-renewable sources both in terms of cost, qualities and availability.

HiMolde is in addition also planning to offer the MSc in Petroleum Logistics as a double degree in collaboration with the main oil and gas university in Russia: Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, Moscow (http://www.gubkin.ru/eng ). Students following the double degree option of the MSc programme, must undertake study periods at both institutions.  Lectures in the first and third semester will then take place in Molde, and the second semester in Moscow.
