The oil & gas industry is becoming a more critical component of the world economy. As the industry transforms itself from one of a few players in the world to many participants who rely on oil and gas production for the economics of their very existence, the world depends on oil and gas for its everyday life.

This course is for non-technical and technical people that are new to the oil & gas industry with little or no knowledge of the industry particularly in Indonesia context. It is geared to providing an understanding of how the industry works from  exploration to commercialization and introduce oil and gas operations and economics to the delegates in attendance.

This program will discuss technical material in a non-technical manner, introduces the language, tools and techniques used by geologists and geophysicist in oil and gas exploration; and provides non-engineers a fundamental understanding of the practical aspects of petroleum exploration, drilling & production including basic principles and applications.



By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Have a good understanding of petroleum industry, particularly in  Indonesia.
  • Understand the exploration / production process in Oil & Gas Industry in Indonesia.
  • Understand and apply petroleum engineering and operation's terminology aim to build a better and effective communications between non-technical people and the engineers and geologist they work with.
  • Be familiar with the terminology associated with procedures and practices to establish an excellent communication between non technical people  with and the engineers and geologist they work with.
  • Understand all aspects of petroleum engineering and operation are carried out ranging from the origin of oil, petroleum exploration, drilling, hydrocarbon, productions to marketing.
