Oil And Gas Industry Fundamentals

Sarah Ashmore
5.0 12/03/2016
What I would highlight: This course covers a lot of information and, having worked in oil and gas events for over 15 years, I felt it cemented a lot of information I have gained over the years as well as going into more detail on all aspects of the business. My role covers working closely with industry experts and developing content for our events and publications, so achieving a better and more in-depth understanding of all the facets of the oil and gas sector through this training was a real benefit. For anyone new joining the sector, or for professionals needing a refresher, this course is the ideal educational tool.
What could be improved: Nothing.
