Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Course? 

The oil and gas industry is subject to a wide range of risks.  These range from external factors impacting on demand such as the world economy, and the rise of competing technologies, to internal risks such as environmental compliance and project over run, back down to the risks associated with suppliers such as availability, quality and pricing of goods and services.

Only by correctly identifying the risks in all areas of the supply chain can the oil and gas industry protect itself when the supply chain threatens to break at a weak link.
