Course: Oil & Gas Well Testing
All participants were content with everything. It proves that the course was arranged according to the high international standards and in compliance with our and SOC requirements.
The course participants consider the course as very effective and useful for them. The instructor was professional and ensured that each participant received complete attention. Attendees gained a lot of knowledge and skill during this course which they will pass to their colleagues in SOC and Ministry of Oil of Iraq. It was very beneficial for the participants that the course was conducted in Arabic with technical terminology in English. I would like to express my gratitude on behalf of Lukoil for arranging this course on the best ever level and taking 24/7 care of our participants. We really appreciate all your efforts very much.

Program: Petrel Well Correlation
The course was very informative... The exercises were put together well and really helped the students to understand the material. The software itself is incredibly powerful and fascinating to work with. The hands-on exercises were very useful in providing a structured overview of the Petrel capabilities. I was very pleased to see integration with Studio functionality. Studio workflows demos shown in the class were very helpful. Hands on exercises are GREAT to get introduced to the workflows. The material is relevant for my role at ExxonMobil. Easy to follow guides for exercises. Excellent organization
Program: Project Management Fundamentals
I recently attended Project Management Fundamentals course at NEXT and I have to admit, you did an outstanding job putting it all together (the book, presentation and the resources on the PM community)...
Program: Introduction to Management of E&P Business, Asset Management Simulation with OilSim
Enabled me to see an asset form the clients perspective - I found the computer simulation to be the most beneficial ; really helped me understand the complexity of the decision making process that E&P go through when exploring/developing oil and gas assets
The OilSim simulation. Practical exercises- excellent reinforcement of topics covered. Excellent team dynamics, thought processes, scenario discussions.
Steve! Amazing instructor, with a vast amount of knowledge and information ! enjoyed the case studies and the interactions for the research on our chosen company - Oilsim - Great for better understanding of overall workflow. I really learned a lot of new information and enjoyed the course a lot; The structure of the course and flow. Mixture between simulation and presentation; Putting the puzzle together, from strategy to abandonment; The pace was good.
Course: Petroleum Exploration and Production
First of all thank you very much for being an amazing mentor for all of us. Because of your great teaching methodology, we are now in a much better shape to take strategic supply chain decisions (a better negotiator) pertinent to Surface Engineering with key contractors. I am sure this course will turn out to be an instrumental guideline especially for people like me with a hard core business background ( BSc - Economics and Math + CIPS) in developing a robust understanding of key rules of the game of upstream segment.

As an operational guy I really enjoyed the VSP course because you have the opportunity to see the tools, their set-up and you are really confronted with what is done on a real VSP job
Head of Geophysical Operations
We had access to the practical facilities and we tested the instruments and recorded everything in real-time using real equipment and for us that was a really good experience that we consider a key point for this kind of training
