What Is The gas Petroleum Refining Program About?

The Centre for Gas, Refining, and Petrochemicals (CGRP) is one of the NUC-Accredited Centres of Excellence in the Institute of Petroleum Studies (IPS), University of Port Harcourt. The Centre runs a Professional M.Sc. Program in Gas, Refining, and Petrochemical Processing. Our Post-Graduate program is industry-driven and the curriculum is drawn to impart entrepreneurial skills to our graduates. Twenty percent (20%) of the lectures are taught by industry professionals with cognate experience and qualifications; sixty percent (60%) by the University of Port Harcourt, and twenty percent (20%) by collaborating university Professors nationwide in the relevant specializations.


The aim of this Professional Gas, Refining and Petrochemical Engineering Master’s and PGD Degree Programmes is to provide graduates with broad-based training required for sound refining and processing of crude oil and natural gas.  The programs will produce competent and industry-ready Gas, Refining, and Petrochemical Processing graduates that will be fully prepared to work in the oil and gas industry at local and international levels. The students will be taught jointly by Lecturers from Nigerian Universities, Professors from oversea countries, as well as experts from the petroleum industry within and outside Nigeria.  The programs will be executed under five modules, namely: General, Refining, Gas & Petrochemicals, Modeling & Design, and Project Modules which is culminated by an MSc dissertation and a PGD project.

On completion of this Programmes, the Graduates will among other skills, be able to:

  • Understand different energy types and the role of fossil fuels in the global energy mix
  • Grasp hydrocarbon chemistry and sequence of crude oil processing operations, including crude oil distillation, refinery equipment, and flow sheet.
  • Work on systems of energy recovery networks for refinery and petrochemicals, including monitoring tools
  • Learn about the petrochemical and natural gas industry and processes, including economic and contractual aspects of the natural gas industry
