About the course
The Campbell Gas Course has been the standard of the industry for more than 47 years. Over 36,600 engineers have attended our G-4 program, considered by many to be the most practical and comprehensive course in the oil and gas industry. The Campbell Gas Course textbooks, Volumes 1 and 2, are routinely updated to reflect evolving technologies in this broad industry. Both hand-methods and computer-aided analysis are used to examine sensitivities of technical decisions. To enhance the learning process, about 30 problems will be assigned, reviewed, and discussed throughout the course. Problems will be solved individually and in teams.

This course is also available through PetroAcademy as a blended offering, combining e-Learning with one week classroom training.
