Course Information:


This 4-day course offers an opportunity for petroleum industry employees and its related governmental, financial, legal and services industries to gain an understanding of the unique economic principles that drive the "oil business" to success in the 21st century. The course begins with presentation of basic economic theory and develops the application of these to financing, finding, development, transportation and marketing of energy resources. The impact of these applications on the success and failure of the firm is then considered. The sessions will always use examples with real and experience situations and will further, whenever possible, use the case method of instruction allowing all to participate in group discussion and learning. Participants are required to bring a laptop, loaded with Microsoft Excel, to the course.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
