Course description

PO1 represents the core foundation course of PetroSkills' production engineering curriculum and is the basis for future oilfield operations studies. Course participants will become familiar with both proven historical production practices as well as current technological advances to maximize oil and gas production and overall resource recovery. The course structure and pace apply a logical approach to learn safe, least cost, integrated analytical skills to successfully define and manage oil and gas operations. Applied skills guide the participant with a framework to make careful, prudent, technical oil and gas business decisions. Currently emerging practices in the exploitation of unconventional resources including shale gas and oil, and heavy oil and bitumen complement broad, specific coverage of conventional resource extraction.

This course is also available virtually via PetroAcademy.
