Oil and gas are considered among the world’s most significant assets. The oil and gas industry plays a vital role in driving the global economy. Petroleum itself is used for numerous products, in addition to serving as the world’s primary fuel source.
The processes and systems involved in producing and distributing oil and gas are exceptionally complex, capital-intensive and require state-of-the-art technology.
As the oil business faces challenges related to environmental change, alternative energies, energy substitutions and adverse changes in the quality of available downstream feedstocks, it recognises the need for managers who have a comprehensive and broad comprehending of the industry, including economics, evaluation and decision-making skills and who comprehend the problems that face the oil and gas industries in the future.
This 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 oil and gas business and specific skills related to the evaluation of opportunities and enhanced decision-making.
– Comprehend all of the value-added steps from the well to the consumer.
– Get an understanding of the ways the oil and gas industries have organised to operate effectively and efficiently.
– Acquire the details of gas processing.
– Learn how crude oil is processed into transportation fuels.
– Comprehend the fundamental economic calculus of both the upstream and downstream oil and gas industries.
– Improve the skills needed to assess opportunities and make effective decisions related to oil and gas operations.
