Natural Gas Courses

Quartic’s natural gas courses look at the fundamentals of this industry and provide students with a solid foundation for understanding the undoubted opportunities and possible challenges facing this dynamic sector of the oil and gas industry.

As our world continues to grapple with the issues posed by global warming many believe that natural gas usage will be key to achieving global GHG emission reductions. As the cleanest of the fossil fuels an increased market share is foreseen in the future. However, this growth in market share will only be achieved via implementation of numerous large-scale natural gas projects in all areas of the world including LNG projects, pipelines, and development of unconventional resources, such as shale gas and CBM.
