Description

Today, in the Oil & Gas industry there is an increased need and importance for performance measurement, auditing and reporting. The need to prepare, use and critically evaluate information on Upstream, Midstream & Downstream Oil & Gas activities, applying specialist industry knowledge and relevant analytical skills, is supplemented by the need for an in-depth knowledge of the International ISO management system standards on quality (ISO 9001:2015), environment (ISO 14001:2015) and occupational health and safety (ISO 45001:2018).

This Oxford QMS Audit and IFRS for Oil & Gas Industry two-week training program develops an essential understanding of oil & gas accounting, reporting and performance measurement issues and practice and provides a detailed understanding of how to undertake system audits both of supplier companies and your own organisation. The emphasis on the results of auditing will be a focus for delegates to assist their own organisations in achieving improved performance in their businesses in the three given areas of quality, environment and health and safety, leading to improved profitability.

This Oxford seminar will highlight:

  • Analysis and evaluation using practical case studies
  • Facilitated group discussions on current issues, policies, procedures
  • Real Life issues within delegates’ organisations and other oil and gas companies
  • Understanding the latest versions of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001
  • Audit planning focused on business risk areas
  • Audit reporting focusing on added value to delegates’ businesses

The training seminar is split into two modules:

  • MODULE I - Auditing Oil & Gas Industry Quality Management Systems
  • MODULE II - IFRS for the Oil & Gas and Petrochemical Sectors (Upstream, Midstream & Downstream)

Each module is structured and can be taken as a stand-alone training course; however, delegates will maximise their benefits by taking Module 1 and 2 back-to-back as a two-weeks training course.

Training Methodology

This Oxford training course is based on the concept accelerated learning. This means that there will be class lectures with delegates encouraged to take part in discussions and sharing their experience followed by individual & team exercises to test and consolidate delegates’ understanding of the presented topics. Learning is further reinforced by examination of relevant extracts from the annual reports of international oil and gas companies. At the end of each day, participants have an opportunity for a one-to-one session with the seminar leader to ask further questions and to go over any material that they have not yet fully understood.
