Why Choose this Training Course?

The impact of fossil fuels on our modern world and our ever increasing dependence on it has resulted in an endless quest for its exploration and production. The easy to find oil is now a phenomenon of the past and is therefore necessary to traverse the planet both off shore and to greater depths, to secure supplies.

This highly interesting training course examines the multi-disciplinary nature of petroleum exploration, technology and production operations in the upstream oil and gas business.

This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:

  • Develop an appreciation and understanding of the origins of oil and gas and identify the basics of geology in relation to oil and gas reservoirs
  • Understand the exploration activities from project inception through to implementation and production i.e. the field life cycle
  • Appreciate the evolving nature of the Oil and Gas industry and its many facets and identify and manage key stakeholder’s expectations
  • Understand the fundamentals of drilling, well completions and production operations and examine the basics of primary and enhanced recovery operations
  • Recognize and learn the terminology as applied to the Oil and Gas industry and appreciate the difference between exploration, appraisal and development wells
