School of Petroleum & Natural Gas 

New Milford

The American Petroleum Institute recently stated that an industry phenomenon known as the “Great Crew Change” could see up to 50% of the oil and natural gas industry’s skilled workers retire within the next five to seven years!

The School of PNG’s associate degree programs answer the industry’s need for a trained workforce in all sectors of the petroleum and natural gas industry, from the drilling and completion of wells to moving petroleum and natural gas to distributors for delivery to customers.

Certificate Programs

The Lackawanna College School of PNG is a location completely dedicated to the oil and gas industry that prepares graduates to be effective employees from day one. Students learn in high-quality lab facilities and work directly with equipment to get the hands-on experience they need to enter the field.

With classes built around engineering principles and industry direction and a dedicated faculty and staff with industry experience, students receive up-to-date information and have a leg up on the career ladder.

Nearly 93% of School of PNG graduates are hired by major exploration and production (E & P), Midstream and Pipeline companies. Our degree paths and certificate programs produce field technologists and technicians that closes the gap between certificate/AAS Vo-tech programs and petroleum engineering programs.
