Through use of lecture, multimedia and class interactive exercises, a breadth of upstream business acumen will be delivered covering economic, business, geoscience and engineering topics. Discussions will include topics related to all types of resource plays including deepwater, shale oil/gas and enhanced oil recovery technologies.
"La informacion esta muy actualizada." - Participant, Mexico
"Loved the way we started with commercial piece and chemical basics and worked into content. Museum visuals were great and nice to get up and walk around. Well balanced - well done!" - Participant, United States
Both technical and business oriented professionals who are either new to the upstream oil and gas industry or experienced in one part, but could benefit from a wider point of view. OVP will likewise deliver for non-industry personnel a broad, basic knowledge set of multiple E&P topics. Legal, Financial, Accounting, Management, and Service Company team members will certainly benefit.
