Exploration and production is a specific and highly specialized sector of the oil and gas industry and deals with high-risk/high-reward segments of the domain of exploration and production for seeking, augmenting, producing and merchandising the various types of oil and fuel gases. Essentially termed as the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry, it includes a number of integrated operations such as procurement and construction, oil field services, E&P operators to produce oil and gas and analytical data processing and infrastructure. The entire domain of exploration and production involves four different stages of exploration, well development, production and abandonment. The entire process of this particular industry comes under the domain of E&P, beginning from searching for hydrocarbons beneath the ground, identifying the potential field and developing liquid hydrocarbon extraction methods, processing of extracted liquid hydrocarbons for supplying different products and finally, assessing if the exploratory site is no longer viable and should be deemed unproductive and left abandoned. The exploration and production of petroleum, oil and gas fuels require extremely sophisticated and high-end methodologies which can be only be executed with the requisite and sufficient knowledge of the domain.

Course Details

This petroleum exploration and production online training course is structured to provide the requisite knowledge of the upstream industry and how the E&P elements and different segments work and can be executed. All the major lifecycle stages of the exploration and production of oil products from exploration, via appraisal, development, planning, production and finally decommissioning are explained in detail with the requisite real life examples. All the different segments of study are explained with reference to the overall business modeling and commercial execution.. Advanced topics of the domain such as deep water exploration, production FPSOs, production platforms, seabed production systems, shale oil and gas, etc. are also explained in this Petroleum E&P training course for the benefit of the trainees. This is an introductory level course and is equally beneficial for both beginners and professionals. Through this course the professionals will be to gain a deeper insight of the domain they work in and beginners will be able to have an introduction to the domain so that they may start a career in it.
