    Data Room Management

    Whenever a company is involved in divesting or acquiring oil and gas assets, whether they are exploration ventures, appraisal opportunities or field developments, it is almost  certain that a data room will be involved. Setting up a data room requires as much forethought and planning as
    attending one. If the attention to detail is lacking, from either the seller or the buyer, then the data room will not achieve its objective and the potential deal may not only be delayed, it may not occur at all.

    This course aims to provide E&P professionals and stakeholders in oil and gas investment sector with an understanding of how to get the most out of data rooms in order to put a reasonable evaluation in front of the decision makers in the shortest timeframe possible. Learning objectives are at knowledge and application levels and participants will take away workflows to streamline their data room processes, to ensure essential data are gathered, and to quickly evaluate opportunities while avoiding some of the pitfalls that exist in all assessments of oil and gas opportunities.
