By the conclusion of the specified learning and development activities Drilling Operations Programme, participants will be able to demonstrate a heightened understanding of the following concepts and issues:

  • Horizontal, Vertical and Full Integration activities, including:
  • Exploring For Oil and Gas;
  • Developing Fields;
  • Producing Oil and Gas;
  • Mining Oil Sands;
  • Extracting Bitumen;
  • Liquefying Gas by Cooling (LNG);
  • Regasifying LNG;
  • Converting Gas to Liquid Products (GTL);
  • Generating Wind Energy.
  • Downstream activities including:
  • Refining Oil into Fuels and Lubricants;
  • Producing Petrochemicals;
  • Developing Bio Fuels;
  • Trading;
  • Retail Sales;
  • Managing CO2 Emission;
  • Supply and Distribution Business-To-Business Sales.
  • Exploring Vertical Integration in Relation to the Following Potentially Advantages:
  • Reduction in transportation costs, where common ownership results in closer geographic proximity;
  • Improvement in the supply chain coordination;
  • Provision of more opportunities to differentiate by means of increased control over inputs;
  • Capturing of upstream or downstream profit margins;
  • Increasing entry barriers to potential competitors, for example, sole access to a scarce resource;
  • Gaining access to downstream distribution channels that otherwise would be inaccessible;
  • Facilitating investment in highly specialised assets in which upstream or downstream players may be reluctant to invest;
  • Exploiting core competencies;
  • Capacity balancing issues, i.e., building excess upstream capacity to ensure that its downstream operations have sufficient supply under all demands;
  • Increased flexibility to coordinate vertically-related activities may increase.
  • Addressing Vertical Integration, with respect to the following potential disadvantages:
  • Potentially higher costs due to low efficiencies resulting from lack of supplier competition;
  • Decreased flexibility due to previous upstream or downstream investments;
  • Decreased ability to increase product variety if significant in-house development is required;
  • Developing new core competencies may compromise existing competencies;
  • Increased bureaucratic costs.
  • Factors favouring horizontal integration, including:
  • Taxes and regulations on market transactions are simplified;
  • Obstacles to the formulation and monitoring of contracts;
  • Strategic similarity between the vertically-related activities;
  • Sufficiently large production quantities so that the firm can Benefit from economies of scale;
  • Creation of barriers of entry, resulting in the reluctance of other firms to make investments specific to the sector of the industry larger firms.
  • Other factors relevant to Oil and Gas Production, incorporating:
  • Oil Well Lease;
  • Long-term explicit contracts;
  • Franchise agreements;
  • Joint ventures;
  • Co-location of facilities;
  • Implicit contracts (relying on firms’ reputation;
