Petroleum is one of the major traded commodities in the global market which drive the economy of many countries. Petroleum technology evolved with many tools and modelling programs in both exploration and production. Hence it is important for the Oil & Gas professionals to update the knowledge with modern best practices.

The Exploration & Production Fundamentals training course will provide the participants with an overview of the oil and gas production and related facilities. It will present an overview/fundamental understanding of the wide range of oil and gas production handling and treatment equipment. The training gives emphasis of the calculation of reserves, fluids properties from reservoir through gathering network.


  • The historical, current and future state of the industry
  • The principles of exploration and production
  • Trends in the industry and their likely development
  • The complete life cycle of exploration and product delivery


The primary objectives of the Exploration & Production Fundamentals training course are to:

  • Learn global oil & gas related statistics, such as reserves, production, consumption and exports
  • Enhance knowledge on upstream, middle stream and downstream operations and related facilities
  • Familiarise the participants with various methods and techniques used to explore, drill, produce, treat and transport oil, gas and their products
  • Gain an overview of the typical oil & gas operations facilities from wellhead, flow lines, separators, tanks, pumps and compressors, pipelines, gas treatment and processing, refinery operations, etc.
  • Understand the basic concept with regards to evaluating oil & gas reserves, artificial lift and enhancing recovery
  • Understand the challenge associated with this industry such as offshore operations, horizontal drilling and other safety concerns
  • Get a general feel for basic petroleum economics


The Exploration & Production Fundamentals training course is designed for:

  • Non-petroleum Engineers
  • Administrators & Support Services personnel
  • Data Processing Personnel

The course is also beneficial to all those interested in obtaining a general understanding of the petroleum technology/industry.


The Exploration & Production Fundamentals training course include a number of exercises aimed at enhancing each participant capability to understand various techniques used in finding, producing and processing oil & natural gas.

A number of short films will be presented during the course to enhance the participants’ knowledge about the petroleum technology. Additionally, no prior knowledge of the topics covered in the course is required..

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training and measure the skill and ability of participants.
