Introduction

This Hydrocarbon Production Operations training seminar aims to provide the participants with an integrated view of how oil and gas is produced, focusing on production and related facilities throughout the lifetime of the reservoir. The role of current technology will be presented and in addition, will include an overview of new and emerging technologies used to improve the bottom line, in the current competitive low oil price environment.

An understanding of the wide range of oilfield production handling and treatment equipment that are utilized during exploration and production will be reviewed during this training seminar and participants will be able to appreciate how fluids behave in the reservoir and how these are extracted processed and refined into finished on-specification marketable products. Reserves calculation and fluids properties, from reservoir through to the gathering network, as well as the necessary knowledge required on how equipment and facilities are operated to maximize production and at the same time minimize costs of this valuable resource, will be presented.

This training seminar will highlight:

  • Up-to-date global statistics of oil & gas, reserves, production, consumption and exports
  • Familiarization of the oil and gas supply chain: upstream, mid-stream and downstream operations and related facilities
  • Update participants of the various methods and technologies used to explore, drill, produce, treat and transport oil, gas and their products
  • Essentials of international oil and gas supply, economics and transportation
  • The key economic drivers of the international oil gas value chain.
  • Primary logistics – tanker freight costs and chartering
  • Supply logistics – major international pipelines, shipping routes, and choke points
  • The configuration and structure of different refineries from simple to complex
  • The value of crude oil based on product market prices retail and distribution

Objectives

This training seminar provides a wider management perspective of the global oil and gas business and highlights the success factors in each of its essential components. It follows the natural order of business, starting with exploration, supply and transportation and followed by refining, distribution and trading operations.

Business case studies of crude oil evaluation, price estimation, netback and refinery margin calculations, transportation and storage costs, sales contracts, product quality etc. will be examined. The training seminar, through the use of visual aids and simulations, will consider several complex operations, such as, drilling, completion, refining, and transportation.

By the end of this training seminar, you will:

  • Gain a broad perspective of the global oil business: Exploration, production, supply, transportation and refining
  • Boost your fundamental analysis of netbacks and refinery margin calculations, vessel chartering, pipelines & terminals
  • Learn the technical, commercial and environmental aspects of the oil and gas business
  • Appreciate the causes and impact of the recent price volatility in crude oil and natural gas markets
  • Recognize the cause and effect of unconventional oil and gas on the industry from a financial and environmental perspectives

Training Methodology

Participants will learn by active participation through the use presentations, case studies, interactive practical exercises, quizzes, training videos and discussion of technological issues related to oil supply, transportation and refining in their organizations.

Organisational Impact

  • Recognized and respected certification
  • Assurance by a quality training organization with a very experienced instructor
  • Informed decision-making, focused action, and a vastly improved understanding of the Hydrocarbon Production Operations and processes in your organisation
  • Managers who have a broader overview and understanding of the structure and operations of Hydrocarbon Production Operations
  • Enhanced sense of confidence by delegates that will lead to empowerment and a results’ driven focus

Personal Impact

  • Deeper understanding and a better capability to critically analyze the methodologies employed within this industry
  • Enhance your understanding of netbacks and refinery margin calculations, vessel chartering, pipelines terminals and other related operations
  • Advance your technical skills to comprehend oil and gas exploration and production.
  • Appreciate how each segment of the supply chain from oil discovery through to marketable products adds value
  • Become familiar with new the technology and its impact on the market.
  • Appreciation of the technical, commercial and environmental aspects of the Hydrocarbon Production Operations business

Who Should Attend?

This training seminar is suitable for personnel needing to gain or improve their knowledge and understanding of crude oil and petroleum products extraction, production and refining, as well as those who want to understand this complex and vast energy industry to comprehend oil sales and causes of price fluctuations.

This training seminar is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Oil & gas field personnel
