Najib is guilty of incompetence, he says: board to be blamed for 1MDB debacle, not me, I don’t know ! Wow. No, not “wow” over the article–which is fascinating, and I learned a WHOLE bunch of stuff I didn’t know before–but “wow” over patricia harte’s post. We remain hopeful but do not yet know if there is producible oil in commercial quantities within our deep primary zones, and there are still many questions yet to be answered.

Essentially, a Drilling Engineer is in charge of drilling the well to produce oil or gas. Renewable forms of energy such as photovoltaic cells, wind, hydro and geothermal are increasingly being used to produce electricity, and excess electricity can be used for the electrolysis process. It represents a positive endorsement of the relevance of the course to the needs of the 21st century industry and its potential to produce graduates with the skills and expertise required to become the global energy professionals of the future. The course provides an understanding of the processes, drivers, threats and opportunities related to the management of the energy and hydrocarbon industry in the 21st century. It adopts a multidisciplinary approach, incorporating modules from various specialist areas including petroleum contracts and economics, project management, renewable energy, risk management, environmental management, strategic and human resource management. Finance and Investment; Law and Policy (this route is not available for May start); and Technology Management).

Other initiatives include a better policy on acceptance of gifts and the prohibition of the issuance of supporting letters by members of the administration or any highly influential persons for any projects or applications.

And as I’ve said for a long time, unfortunately the oil field doesn’t necessarily work on the same timetable that we would all like. Drilling Engineers work in office and field environments including well sites, which can be on land, offshore or on mobile drilling units. Energy is the ability to do work. Every hour on the Earth’s surface falls enough solar energy to meet world energy needs for an entire year. Distributed generation is a new renewable energy trend in the generation of heat and electrical power. Modern interest in renewable energy development is linked to concerns about exhaustion and greenhouse gases of fossil fuels and environmental, social and political risks of extensive use of fossil fuels and nuclear power.
