Introduction to Oil and Gas

This course is designed to give personnel with limited experience in oil and gas industry, a basic overview of oil and gas production process, and associated utilities. We believe it is vitally important that personnel new to oil and gas understand the bigger picture before beginning to learn ‘on the job’.

This course explains how oil and gas is located, how the reservoir produces and flows via wells and how the oil and gas is processed and transported to its destination.

Course Objectives

As with all our courses we teach fundamentals enabling the delegate to understand the basic principles of operation, not theoretically as in a technical education, but practically from a real world operational point of view.

On completion of the course delegates shall have a basic understanding of conventional and unconventional formations, the Oil separation process, Gas treatment process, Water treatment process and associated Utilities.

We will not only explain the process involved but also the working principles of the equipment involved.
