EPO - Exploration and Production on-line

EPO - Exploration & Production on-line

This 12 hour on-line course describes the life-cycle of the reservoir from formation of the hydrocarbon to how that oil and/or gas is trapped in the reservoir to the exploration process, followed by the reservoir appraisal, development planning and execution of that plan and finally production operations. It is an excellent introduction to the upstream petroleum industry.

Key Learning Elements

  • People - involved personnel and their functions in the oil and gas business.
  • Life Cycle - various phases of the oil and gas industry.
  • Technologies - exposure to enabling technologies and processes for successful exploitation of the non-renewable hydrocarbon resources.
  • Social, environmental and financial aspects of the oil and gas business.
