This PetroKnowledge training course will address the critical management issues in oil and gas business that will affect future profitability and growth within a rapidly changing global energy market.  It will enable managers in this business to achieve and sustain superior personal and team performance.

The structure of the oil and gas industries is going through a period of significant change.  The outlook for oil and gas prices is problematic and subject to pressures from alternative energy sources.  At the same time, the growth in global demand is coming from newly industrializing markets rather than the more mature economic zones.  This has major implications for upstream and downstream operations and for the type and level of investment that will be required over the medium term.  These developments also have a direct impact on the closely linked petrochemical business.  In summary, the oil and gas business will require a very different strategic approach in the future within a fundamentally changed economic, market and business environment. This training course aims to enable you to design and manage the new approach.

This training course will highlight:

  • The changing structure and dynamics of the global oil and gas business
