An interactive guide shows how oil's importers and exporters have reshaped the industry for two decades.
GSM London, a higher education institution with campuses in Greenford and Greenwich, created an interactive guide identifying how countries trade one of the world’s most important resources – crude oil.
The guide uses data from the United Nations and shows the top 10 importers and exporters of crude from 1995-2014 and includes commentary on the oil trade’s changing landscape.
James Milne, module leader for the energy and procurement department at GSM London, said the surge in interest in oil and gas related courses at GSM London is due to the attractiveness of the industry in relation to job roles and salaries offered to graduates.
“London in particular has emerged as the world’s capital for small oil and gas startups, while education in the UK prepares many for employment in other parts of the world,” Milne told Rigzone. “The oil and gas management program at GSM London has been extremely popular with more than 1,000 students currently enrolled in the undergraduate option – many of these students are eager to begin a career in different regions of the world.”
For example, he noted Africa has a growing need for graduates with managerial skills (health and safety, operations, maintenance and production, project controls, law and policy and environment) as well as engineering skills – deepwater drilling expertise is in high demand in West Africa.
Milne provided commentary in a release on the industry’s key developments in 2016:
