About the course

Historically, crude oil overproduction has always resulted in a global oil glut and a subsequent oil price collapse. The current cycle of low oil prices is challenging the International and National Oil Companies (IOC’s) & (NOC’s) alike, both upstream and downstream of the Oil & Gas supply chain. This has prompted these businesses to reinvent themselves and to abandon traditional strategic planning exercises in favor of resizing, merging, or putting projects on hold and in extreme situations project cancellation, as well as laying-off personnel.

A closer look at production activities shows that although the cost of oil production may be uneconomical, the industry still needs to continue to explore and develop oil and gas projects so as to meet future demand.

This Mini MBA in Oil & Gas and Energy Management training course provides delegates with a broader understanding of the key concerns facing the petroleum industry and furnishes them with skills and knowledge to effectively identify and tackle these issues. In depth awareness of the current advances in Oil & Gas project management techniques addressing risk management, planning and scheduling approaches and project finance and economics will ensure a successful management of future Oil & Gas energy projects.

This training course will feature:

  • The Importance of highlighting success factors in each category of energy business models
  • Effective clarification of core issues, tactics and concepts in the Oil & Gas sector
  • The application of a wider management perspective in the global Oil & Gas business
  • Detailed Risk Management practices in the Oil and Gas Industries
  • Discussions on applications of project management in an Oil & Gas environment
  • An understanding of how the expectation for Oil & Gas demand will shape the industry in the future
  • Personnel sufficiently skilled and competent to comprehend and weather cycles of low oil prices

OBJECTIVES

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate the important issues facing the industry and the strategies to effectively address them
