Oil and gas are considered among the world's most critical resources and therefore play a pivotal role in driving the global economy. The exploration, production, refining, and distribution of oil and gas involve the most complex and capital-intensive processes and require state-of-the-art technology.

This 10-day International Petroleum Management training course has been designed to enable participants to learn more about oil & gas production technologies, the chemistry of petroleum and the refining processes, the oil & gas exports and imports business, and best business practices.

This training course will provide a more efficient understanding of the international oil and gas business value chain.

Through this Energy Training Centre training course, delegates will also learn:

  • The critical success factors of oil & gas operations – Seismic, wireline services, drilling, fracturing, well completion, production and processing for export
  • Recoveries through the primary, secondary and enhanced oil recovery techniques
  • Shale oil and gas production potential in different regions of the world
  • Renewable energy sources and their comparative costs
  • Energy economics, project evaluation and decision-making skills
  • Crude oil and gas supply, transportation, marketing, trading and storage

To provide delegates with the understanding, knowledge and strategies that oil & gas management must make for success.

By the end of this 10-Day International Petroleum Management training course, delegates will be able to:

  • Have an understanding of the ways the oil & gas and energy industries have organized to operate effectively and efficiently
  • Recognize the latest Game-changing technologies – seismic, well logging, horizontal drilling, fracking, gas to liquid, etc.
  • Distinguish the renewable sources of energy and the future trends in Solar, Wind, Wave, Hydro, Geothermal, Nuclear, and the methodology to compare the costs of energy of each source
  • Understand the benefits of integrating refineries with petrochemicals
  • Gain an understanding of the ways the oil and gas industries have organized to operate effectively and efficiently

This 10-Day International Petroleum Management training course is a highly interactive stimulating learning experience, with opportunities to advance the opinions and ideas of the delegates. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment that ensures the concepts introduced during the training course are understood and reinforced. This is achieved through a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentation, open discussion and case studies.

PowerPoint slides and videos will be used during the training course and will be augmented by business case studies and facilitated discussions. The delegates will be engaged and encouraged to exchange ideas. Short videos will also be used to reinforce specific technical and operational points and to relate the material to real-world experience.
