This course takes participants through all the major stages in the life of an oil or gas field, from gaining access to opportunity, through exploration, appraisal, development planning, early and late production and finally to decommissioning. It succinctly explains the fiscal and commercial environments in which oil and gas field developments take place in different parts of the world. Participants are provided with a current and comprehensive introduction to the upstream industry. The course is therefore useful to industry professionals who want to be better informed about the basic technical and commercial methods, concepts and terminologies and who want to develop an understanding how decisions are being made during planning and execution of projects. Particular emphasis is to develop an appreciation of the risks and uncertainties inherent to upstream developments. The course also demonstrates the role and interdependencies of the many different disciplines contributing to the oil and gas industry.
