Upstream Oil and Gas Industry - The Full E&P Picture

Course Summary
This course addresses the technical aspects of exploration, field development and oil, gas and gas liquid production. It also addresses the detailed economic, risk, fiscal and commercial issues from the perspective of a spectrum of potential corporate participants in large and small international upstream oil and gas projects. The course materials will include videos from E&P projects across the World and exercises to reinforce learning.
What you will learn

  • Where and how oil and gas accumulates in reservoirs in the Earth's crust
  • Prospecting and drilling techniques used to find, develop and produce oil and gas
  • What is best practice in the upstream industry
  • About existing and new technologies that facilitate and optimize technical recovery and maximize commercial returns for oil and gas companies
  • How to overcome the technical issue and challenges that confront upstream operators
  • Key upstream performance indicators used to judge finding, development and operating phases of activity
  • Which negotiating and bidding strategies to use in different circumstances
  • Fiscal and contract issues that impact long-term viability of oil and gas field development
  • How risk and cost factors are monitored and managed in typical exploration and production projects
  • The roles and opportunities in the sector for national oil companies (NOCs), majorinternational oil companies (IOCs) and smaller independent companies
  • Analytical approaches to valuation and funding of upstream projects from the perspectives of operators, service contractors, equity investors and lenders
  • Suitability:
    As the course addresses technical, commercial, contractual, fiscal, strategy and operations almost all professional disciplines working in the upstream industry would benefit from the material included and broad perspective taken.
