I need a report on global trends in petroleum exploration and work market, with particular focus on Brazil. The report needs to well referenced. The report's findings will need to dovetail into a series of recommendations for the creation of a series of university courses.
For example, if your research pointed to a particular lack of personnel in the area of drilling and oil recovery you may recommend a course in "petroleum engineering". You may also notice global and regional trends towards the exploration of novel forms of hydrocarbon extraction, such as shale gas...you may therefore recommend a course on "novel hydrocarbon reservoirs".
This is not a large report. 6-10 pages is sufficient. Figures, such as graphs, to show tendencies and trends are welcome.
In the attached file I provide a series of PDF files, which you may find useful as a springboard for beginning your research.
Deadline: End of February 2013.
