Free Online Course in Oil & Gas Industry Operations and Markets
The oil and gas industry has a huge impact on all aspects of daily life, as individuals, companies, and national governments make financial and political decisions based on the cost, availability, and use of both oil and gas.
Therefore, this two-week course addresses the most important aspects of the oil and gas industry, in terms of their operations and markets, as each of them is addressed as a separate unit in the course.
In the Operations Unit, the course provides an overview of oil and gas production, from initial exploration to final transportation. The second unit focuses on the forces driving industry operations and the oil and gas markets, including the cost of wells, seasonal impacts on prices and the role of oil reserves.
