The Overview of the GIS Oil and Gas Training includes: UPSTREAM – Today and tomorrow Exploration, Production & Drilling Natural Gas, Natural Gas Liquids (NGL’s) and Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) The importance of the Oilfield Services Industry Who does what – the industry participants. DOWNSTREAM – Next Week Refining Petroleum Product Marketing Transportation & Distribution Commodity Trading and Risk Management New Downstream Dimensions – Ethanol, & Biofuels
The Introduction to the Oil and Gas Industry Module provides a high level overview of the Oil & Gas supply chain from the original microbes that helped form the oil and gas hydrocarbons to the markets that are served today. Oil and gas companies often are categorized as operating in one (or more) of three business segments: upstream , midstream and downstream . This module provides a high-level view of the entire scope of the oil and gas industry. The scope and importance of the oilfield services industry that provides technology, engineered materials and services to the upstream industry also is discussed. To understand the business of oil and gas, it is helpful to divide the complex subject into four basic themes: reserves , production , processing and consumption. Each lesson in the module will offer more detailed explanations, i.e., various aspects of the four themes, the processes, business drivers, global trends, key industry participants and their characteristics. This module introduces the technical and commercial language, business drivers, and decision processes used around the world. A glossary has been developed to clarify the industry-specific terms used throughout the module. To learn more, the student will also have access to videos and external research resources on the E&Y Oil & Gas Global Community HomeSpace. It is important that each lesson in this module be completed in full before advancing to another lesson. Ideally, participants will take the lessons in the recommended sequence – and return to any lesson for review if needed Lesson: Introduction Topic: Module Learning Objectives Sub-Topic: Learning Objective:
