Client Testimonials

It was fun and collaborative. The instructor was very entertaining and knowledgeable
It was very useful to get to know the broad picture of the oil and gas industry, starting from exploration and to seeing the first drop of the oil. Instructor was very friendly and taught the entire course with high spirit, which allowed the students to actively participate during the lectures and be part of it.
One of the best softwares I have ever came across. It was fun at the same time I gained a lot of knowledge. And it gave a wonderful opportunity to mingle with different people and with their different ideas which enhanced my knowledge. Thanks NExT and Schlumberger

Upstream Business Basics with OilSim

Understanding the business of oil and gas is essential to support employers and clients. Hands-on team based learning, flexible facilitation and the use of the OilSim business simulator provides a unique classroom experience.  Through active immersion and in only two days, participants come away with a broad and memorable understanding of the upstream value chain.

Reflecting real-life decision gates, teams act as virtual petroleum companies where the value chain processes are followed through from geoscientific, engineering and economic perspectives.

This course provides participants with an integrated overview of oil and gas exploration and field development, including terminologies and business language. During the class, participants must analyze geophysical, geological, and engineering data to make their own time-critical decisions, with outcomes that affect the performance of their companies in later stage gates.  Also, whilst considering the scientific complexities of their challenges, teams must deliberate on the economic viability of their reservoirs.

Team work and soft skills are at the core of a company’s success and this course offers a multitude of opportunities for participants to learn and practice their soft skills and behaviors.

Costs versus risk; global stewardship; health, safety and environment; local content and fiscal constraints; effective planning and iterating of potential solutions – all drives home the complex, dynamic and risky nature of oil and gas.

    Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital and largest city of Malaysia.

    Beginning in the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One World Championship. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Protected by the Titiwangsa Mountains in the east and Indonesia's Sumatra Island in the west, Kuala Lumpur has a tropical rainforest climate which is warm and sunny, along with abundant rainfall, especially during the northeast monsoon season from October to March.

    The major tourist destinations in Kuala Lumpur include the Dataran Merdeka (the Independence Square), the House of Parliament, the Istana Budaya, the Istana Negara (National Palace), the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Muzium Negara (National Museum), the Putra World Trade Centre, the Tugu Negara (National Monument) and mosques such as the Masjid Jamek, the Masjid Negara (National Mosque) and the Federal Territory Mosque.

    Other tourist attractions include the Aquaria KLCC, the Batu Caves, the Makam Pahlawan (National Mausoleum), the National Science Centre, Petaling Street, the Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre, the Zoo Negara (National Zoo), and events such as Malay cultural centres, the Chinese cultural festivals at the Thean Hou Temple and the Thaipusam procession at the Sri Mahamariamman Temple. The Golden Triangle, the commercial hub of the city, contains the Petronas Twin Towers and has a distinctive nightlife.
