Course Overview

What is the significance of exploration and production processes in the oil and gas industry? Exploration and production make up the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry and are instrumental in the success of the entire supply chain. These processes involve extensive collaboration and association with various vendors and joint-venture partners throughout the various functions of this sector. Contracts and huge amounts of analytical data are a common requirement in this part of the supply chain. The first step in this sector is to explore, that is, to locate probable sites for drilling of wells to obtain crude oil, which then undergoes treatment and processing to produce different products of crude oil.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the required knowledge, experience, and exposure of a major part of the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry—exploration and production. The skills and capabilities acquired by undertaking this course will help you successfully assume any role in the oil and gas processing sector, thus increasing your scope for skill enhancement and professional growth. Further, given the prospect of the oil and gas industry, undertaking this course and acquiring the required knowledge and experience would be key to reach a global platform and achieve a successful career.
