Generally, MEng (Master of Engineering) would refer to course-based graduate program whereas MASc (Master of Applied Science) would mean research-based graduate program. But for your chosed university (Memorial); it seems the opposite.
I've gone through Memorial University website and found the following in your interested subject (Oil & Gas Engineering):Research-Based (http://www.engr.mun.ca/graduate/research/oil_and_gas.php):
When you choose this, you have to satisfy one of the professors of your interest to work (research) under him. If you get a "yes" from any professor/supervisor; then you can get admission to the uni. Since this is not entirely based on courses you take; the duration would largely depend on your supervisor. On average, it would take 1.5 ~ 2 year. Benefits of this would include research funding, GA-ship, hands-on experience, publishing papers, attending conference & seminars and making contacts for your future endeavour. Course-Based (http://www.engr.mun.ca/graduate/course/masc_oil.php):
The admission would be lot easier than the previous one as this is solely handled by the university/ engineering authority. You'll fulfill the required credit hours by taking courses just like an undergrad (will take 12 ~ 14 months). Most courses will have team projects. If you're lukcy, you may get some scholarship. But there won't be much as of hands-on experience and other facilities. Only benefit I see from this program is the INTERNSHIP OPTION. Normally, co-op/intern opportunities are very limited to graduate students (don't know about this uni) and hence it may be very competitive to get one. But it will be highly beneficial in order to getting a job after post-grad.
You should research more about the criteria of different PR application category (CEC, PNP etc.). A research-based masters program would be valued more than a course-based one. A company will always see how much experience you gathered along with your studies.
