Why Choose this Training Course?

Natural gas is the most energy efficient fossil fuel— it offers important energy saving benefits when it is used instead of oil or coal. It is also a source of hydrocarbons for petrochemical feedstock and a major source of elemental sulfur. Its popularity as an energy source is expected to grow substantially in the future because natural gas can help achieve two important energy goals for the twenty-first century— providing the sustainable energy supplies and services needed for social and economic development and reducing adverse impacts on global climate and the environment in general.

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day PetroKnowledge training course will highlight the added value that International Gas Business can offer a professional, including the necessary technical, commercial, and business management training.
