Course Overview

What is petroleum engineering? Petroleum engineering refers to all activities concerning the production of hydrocarbons, mainly crude oil and natural gas. Exploration and production are two critical processes and constitute the upstream sector of the oil and gas value chain.

Geologists and petroleum engineers take collective efforts to ensure that reservoir health is maintained and resources do not deplete. Since petroleum engineering is important and encompasses a wide range of activities, it requires knowledge in multiple other disciplines. Hence, pursuing a career in petroleum engineering requires one to undergo multiple training programs.

This Zoe training course will empower you with detailed information and knowledge about all aspects of petroleum engineering. By undertaking this course, you will acquire all that is required to successfully assume senior roles and responsibilities within this domain, in turn demonstrating talent and potential and inviting multiple opportunities to fast track your career progression.

Course Objectives

The primary objective of this Masterclass in Petroleum Engineering training course is to empower professionals with—

  • complete information and knowledge of all aspects of petroleum engineering
  • the required skillset and capabilities to handle any function or process related to the hydrocarbon production, thereby demonstrating one’s potential to assume higher roles and responsibilities
  • the necessary confidence and exposure to train other professionals to adopt best practices to be successful petroleum engineers
  • the confidence and experience to oversee end-to-end operations related to petroleum engineering, thereby securing one’s career progression within and outside the organisation
  • an understanding of various techniques that can be applied to enhance the speed of operations and improve operational productivity
  • the required confidence and skill to work with newly introduced technological processes to speed up hydrocarbon production
  • a thorough understanding of all aspects related to petroleum engineering to effectively troubleshoot challenges and prevent these from impacting the organisation or its operations
  • the ability to contribute to organisational growth and development through operational excellence and reduced costs
  • the overall skill set and confidence to manage any and every role involved in hydrocarbon production, thus increasing avenues for growth

Training Methodology

Zoe Talent Solutions delivers training in a very unique format. This format includes theoretical delivery through lectures conducted by experienced professionals from the relevant domain as well as practical lessons through group projects, assignments, role-plays etc. The trainer also encourages trainees to share related ideas and problems they face at their workplace, and these are then discussed with the rest of the group for idea sharing, situational analysis etc.

This format is adopted by Zoe Talent Solutions for all its courses and is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.

Organisation Benefit

With professionals undertaking this Masterclass in Petroleum Engineering training course, their organisations will benefit in the following ways:

  • Seamless and efficient end-to-end operations for hydrocarbon production
  • Application of innovative ideas and techniques to enhance various processes within the organisation
  • Increased frequency for employee training and upskilling
  • Better risk assessment and management
  • Effective use of technology for enhancing operational productivity and quality by reducing human dependence
  • Cross-skilled employees to act as immediate replacements to prevent certain operations or functions from stopping for the want of skilled resources
  • Optimal use of available resources and equipment, thereby preventing redundant activities and saving costs
  • Increased credibility and stability because of the effective and timely management of challenges
  • Organisational development through the introduction of top-class methods, greater credibility and reduced costs
