Event Details

Course overview

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the upstream oil and gas facilities associated with onshore, offshore,shallow to ultradeep water depths, FPSO and subsea developments and how they are integrated into full field developments from the wellbore to product export and delivery. A review of the key oil and gas processing requirements based on end user specifications will be covered as well as the effects that fluid contaminants such as wax, ashpaltenes, H2S and CO2 can have on the processing and development configurations and project costs.

The key stages from project idea, through exploration, development, production and abandonment will be covered in detail. This will include field development planning and associated lifecycle cost estimates and schedules required to produce the investment profile, which is the key input for project economic evaluation.

The course will be accessible to all people as there will be an emphasis to demystify the terminology and nomenclature used within the industry.

The course is designed for

  • Professionals who want to expand their knowledge of the industry
  • Explorationists
  • Engineers, engineering trainees, technicians
  • Project and technical managers and assistants
  • Geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists
  • Commercial personnel
  • Service company personnel
  • Sales representatives
  • Other technical disciplines
  • Students considering the industry as a career
