Who should attend?

Audience

    • Professionals of the Oil & Gas industry looking to acquire a broad knowledge of the E&P industry in order to efficiently interact with specialists of the various segments it comprises.

Level

  • Discovery
  • This course aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the various steps and techniques involved in Field Development Projects, from exploration and prospect evaluation to production and through HSE issues. It covers the achievements and challenges of today’s Exploration & Production industry and also provides a comprehensive introduction to economics and legal framework in the E&P industry.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • explain the various phases of Oil & Gas development projects,
  • identify the contribution of all experts and technologies involved through a field development project,
  • understand the E&P value chain from prospect to market and associated contractual framework,
  • describe techniques involved in field development in order to efficiently interact with technical teams.
