New technical staff and administrative staff in the oil & gas business. Staff in organizations working with the oil industry (investment banks, service industry).

Content

  • History of the oil industry, current issues
  • Geological concepts, global distribution of hydrocarbons, nature and geometry of hydrocarbon reservoirs

Depending on the participants and learning objectives, the course may be run as a three-day short event. Alternatively, for new technical staff, the course can be extended to a basic technical E&P introduction module of two to three weeks' duration.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the course participants have a good but general understanding of the 'upstream' oil and gas business: how hydrocarbons are found, developed, produced and treated prior to sales.
