Why Choose this Training Course?

The hydrocarbon gas industry is fundamental to the successful exploitation of one of the world’s most important resources. This industry plays a critical role in driving the global economy. The ever increasing use of energy to power the need for the industrial development has resulted in rapid expansion of gas exploration, processing and usage.

The processes and systems involved in producing processing and distributing large quantities gas are highly complex, capital-intensive and require state-of-the-art technology.

As the gas industry faces challenges related to climate change, alternative energies, and energy substitutions, it recognizes the need for managers who have a comprehensive and broad understanding of the industry, including economics, evaluation and decision-making skills and who understand the issues that face the gas industries in the future.

This PetroKnowledge training course will provide a basis for functional managers and those whose experience has been limited to a particular area of the industry, to prepare for additional responsibilities by providing a broad base of knowledge covering the total spectrum of the gas business and specific skills related to the evaluation of opportunities and enhanced decision-making.

The training course addresses the following key highlights:

  • Understanding of the process considerations of the hydrocarbon gas chain
  • Effective and efficient operations of the industry
  • The economics of the gas industries
  • Skill developments for opportunity evaluation relating to the gas market

What are the Goals?

By the end of this training course, participants will have:

  • An understanding of the value added steps in the gas processes
  • Gain an insight in the way the Gas Industries have organized to operate effectively and efficiently
  • Learn the details of gas processing
  • Understand the fundamentals of the economics of the gas industries

Who is this Training Course for?

This PetroKnowledge training course will be of interest to:

  • Engineers
  • Managers
  • Employees working in the areas of Planning Marketing or Finance
  • Anyone requiring a broad understanding of the structure operations and economics of the gas industries
