Oil and Gas Essentials

Why Attend

The global oil and gas industry is under sweeping changes due to international pricing competition and with the dynamics of the industry changing, with aging asset infrastructure and the need to decommission equipment in a safe and environmentally friendly way. However as well as aging infrastructure, there is also an aging workforce which is leaving the industry and taking valuable knowledge and expertise with it. With the industry in need of a new workforce to take it strongly in to the future, this clear practical and exciting course gives you the foundation knowledge to help you on your oil and gas industry career.

Course Methodology

The material used in the training course will be based on exercises as well as regional and international case studies. Participants will frequently work in pairs with one another as well as in larger teams.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Recall the structure and lifecycle of the oil and gas industry, and understand how the industry functions from upstream, through midstream to downstream
  • Recognize how oil is formed, found, recovered/extracted, processed, transported and sold
  • Describe terminologies and functions, including installations, production facilities and onshore/offshore operations and support requirements
  • Explain oil and gas operations and the associated challenges, as well as the various systems monitoring and controlling equipment
  • Examine why the industry is classified as a high risk safety critical industry

Target Audience

Anyone wishing to gain an overview or basic understanding of oil and gas, the industry or its operations. This includes, but is not limited to, anyone new to the oil and gas industry, contractors working with clients in the industry, or anyone within a non-technical role in the industry who is seeking a greater understanding of operations.
