Cirkular economy

Circular Economy for the Oil and Gas Industry

Circular Economy for the Oil & Gas Industry (CE4O&G) supports the Norwegian oil & gas industry, and the related supplier industries’ transition to more circularity. The program’s aim is to upgrade participants' existing industry-specific competences, with additional circular economy (CE) related knowledge skills and competences. The program is aimed towards participants either employed or currently unemployed, from the oil, gas and supplier industries.

Circular Economy (CE) is to replace the current take-make-waste industrial model, by aiming to decouple the relationship between growth and material use through, e.g. reusing, remanufacturing or recycling strategies. Oil & gas, and related supplier industries can achieve scalable benefits from transitioning towards more circularity. The changes related to these industries are on the horizon in the new more circular world, but the sector can most likely leverage its knowledge and experience, if prepared for the new shifts.

This online course in English will provide its participants knowledge and skills to recognize and better implement circular economy opportunities. CE4O&G offers several interactive learning experiences, e.g. a streaming event on public policy, an interactive CE World Café event to increase communication skills for CE, industry inputs for topics such as oil and gas industry in the green shift and the greening of the oil and gas supply chains.

The course takes place between February and April 2021.

The planned kick off of the course is on February 17th at 17:30h.

​Is this course for me?

The program is directed especially towards participants from the oil, gas and supplier industries. You can be either currently employed or unemployed.

We hope to reach individuals who are designing and delivering new (innovative) circular solutions, or have an interest in doing so, as well as those individuals that contribute to their implementation or to CE-related goal-setting. This program will to enhance your knowledge and skills in CE.

Do you recognize yourself?
Are you perhaps an employee (e.g. an engineer) in oil &gas, and related supplier industries, who is working to develop a certain solution that can be seen as circular, think you might need to do so soon, or simply are curious how your work can connect with more circularity and how you can prepare for potential shifts in your industry? We will equip you with how to think about these solutions in terms of circularity to upgrade your industry-specific skills and know how to use them in other circular settings, as well as e.g. equip you with some skills to communicate your CE-related ideas.

Similarly, if you are a project manager this program offers many interest points for you, for example considerations relevant to engaging in new CE solutions, including issues such as CE value proposition experiments etc.

Or perhaps you are a leader or working in an accounting position? The program includes very relevant content, e.g. for accounting experts the issues related to financial reporting for CE, or for leaders e.g. how to connect your goal-setting with the general or more specific circular trends.

We believe a basic understanding of what it takes to transition to circular economy needs to be understood and shared from top to bottom level employees and hope this course will also enable you to have a platform to connect to other people from your industries that are interested in CE

Admission requirements

Requirements for admission are same as for the bachelor level studies , i.e. Generell studiekompetanse.

The Norwegian applicants that do not have the general study competences and are 25 years or older, can also be admitted if they comply with the Special admission requirements (i.e. Realkompetanse).

You must have relevant competence for a study program that can offset the fact that you do not meet the usual admission requirements. As the program is directed towards participants from the oil, gas and supplier industry, especially prior experience working inside these industries are relevant.
