Engineering, Oil and Gas

Project Economics for Oil & Gas Industries

REF: E6089  DATES: 9 - 13 Dec 2019  VENUE: Istanbul (Turkey)-Radisson Blu Sisli  FEE: 4500 


The course allows the participants to develop a deep understanding of petroleum economics and the complex decision making process involved in the upstream oil and gas sector – a sector that is highly capital intensive and fraught with uncertainties. The course provides an overview of the special features of the oil and gas markets then zooms in on the different types of costs and economics across the supply chain. It also explores the key variables affecting decision making and investment – namely size of reserves, oil and gas prices, technological advancements, costs, market conditions, political risks, environmental threats and government regulations, to name but a few.

The participants will enjoy a dynamic and active learning process. Throughout the course, they will examine real case studies and take part in group discussions to maximise their knowledge and share their expertise.

Learning Outcomes:

The course strikes the right balance between theory and practice – the former to establish a solid understanding of key concepts used in the oil and gas industry, the latter to illustrate the application of these concepts to real cases.

It is of benefit to Government officials aiming to acquire a better understanding of the oil and gas industry and the behaviour of international companies, which in turn should be taken into consideration when designing policies and formulating plans. The course also benefits participants from the private sector who want to develop a deep knowledge of the economics of oil and gas projects.

The course provides a thorough understanding of:

  • How the oil and gas industry operates in an ever-changing technical, economical, and political environment.
  • The economics of each stage of the supply chain, with a special focus on upstream activities.
  • The decision making process within a typical oil and gas company, taking into consideration various types of risk.
  • The techniques used by oil and gas companies to carry out meticulous economic evaluations of any capital investment’s commitment before allocating their limited resources.
  • How Governments affect oil and gas companies’ investment decision.
