Course Overview

Petroleum exploration and production activities constitute the upstream sector of the oil and gas value chain. This is a high-risk, high-reward sector.

Organisations focus on activities of exploring, testing, extracting, refining and producing oils of different types from the crude oil obtained from reservoirs.

Given the risks involved in these activities, operations need to be carefully carried out, since rewards are also extremely high. This brings in the demand for robust and specialised training to carefully and skilfully execute and handle petroleum exploration and production operations.

This Zoe’s Petroleum Exploration and Production training course will empower you with complete knowledge and information about all activities involved in petroleum exploration and production.

The Petroleum Exploration and Energy Production Process and Technology course covers all critical concepts necessary for one to do well in any role in petroleum exploration and production.

Further, by undertaking this course, you will gain the required confidence and experience to successfully assume higher roles and responsibilities within the upstream sector, thereby fostering faster career growth and progression.

Course Objectives:

The primary objective of this Petroleum Exploration and Energy Production Process and Technology training course is to empower professionals with—

  • a thorough understanding of all critical aspects of petroleum exploration and production
  • the required knowledge and perspective to review existing processes and check for gaps and solutions for enhancements
  • adequate confidence and experience to undertake the training of other professionals on petroleum exploration and production practices
  • the required foresight and skills to predict risks and devise corrective action plans to mitigate the negative impact of these
  • the understanding and knowledge of advanced concepts that can be applied to exploration and production operations to enhance quality and productivity
  • the capability and skill to work with new technology to enhance the speed and quality of operations
  • thorough knowledge of all regulations and legislations to be followed when carrying out exploration and production activities and ensuring that one’s organisation adheres to these
  • the ability and potential to contribute to building organisational credibility and promoting organisational development through better, smarter operations
  • the overall skill set and capabilities to undertake higher roles and responsibilities within or outside the organisation, thereby widening the scope for career growth opportunities

Training Methodology

Zoe Talent Solutions delivers training in a unique format comprising theoretical and practical exercises. The theoretical part of training is through lectures by experienced professionals from the relevant domain, while the practical application is ensured through assignments, projects, role-plays etc.

Two-way participation and trainee interaction is encouraged by assigning these tasks and projects in groups. Relevant case study discussions help the trainees relate the training content to practical scenarios.

Trainees are also encouraged to share related real-life experiences at their workplaces and these are then discussed with the rest of the group and in relation to the training content.

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