AGR’s TRACS Training experts teaching on Aberdeen University’s Petroleum Engineering Course
Published 20.03.2014
Dedicating much of their own personal time to the cause, the team have collaborated with the University to teach third and fourth year students studying for a Bachelors or Masters Degree in Petroleum Engineering.

AGR's TRACS Training Director, Mark Bentley.
Principal Reservoir Engineer, Mark Cook and Principal Petroleum Engineers, Jonathan Bellarby and Roger McIlroy are passionate about the need for a high quality Petroleum Engineering degree in the oil and gas hub of Aberdeen.  To assist the University in achieving this goal, Jonathan and Roger prepared a final year course in Production Technology while Mark prepared a third year course in Reservoir Engineering Well Test Analysis.
 
The Production Technology course was taught by Jonathan and Roger, along with AGR associates, Don Sharples and Colin Bennett, while Marks Well Test Analysis course is still ongoing.
 
The Production Technology course was mainly constructed from materials created by Jonathan, with his book “Well Completion Design” as the course reader, while Mark developed a Well Test Design & Analysis course with input on the tutorial materials from AGR Reservoir Engineer, Peter Roberts and Mark also drew on a text developed by AGR Moscow’s John Gallivan. This course has been requested again for 2015 and will be further developed for the Petroleum Engineering MSc course starting next year.
 
The University have now approached the team to request the Production technology course be run again this year (2014/15 session) and in addition, a more advanced version of the course as part of an aspired Masters course.
 
AGR’s TRACS Training Director, Mark Bentley said: “The collaboration with the Aberdeen University is one that we are very proud of and one that we feel is very important.  Strong linkage between the University and the oil and gas industry ensures that teaching is in-line with today’s requirements and AGR’s TRACS Training couldn’t be better-placed to give students the opportunity to learn from well-respected professionals and to share our knowledge straight from the workplace."
