Description:Oil and gas exploration and development to supply Canada's growing industrial and domestic requirements has increased rapidly during the past decade. The sustained discoveries of oil and gas along the East Coast coupled with continued oil and gas discoveries on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland and Labrador in the Arctic Regions renews Canada’s commitment to become self-sufficient in its fossil energy needs. The three year CTAB Accredited Petroleum Engineering Technology (Co-op) program is designed to train technologists for aspects of the oil and gas industry and is supported by the increased interest in sustainable methods of further enhancing science and technology to develop these reservoirs.
