Oil and Gas
Oil and natural gas currently provide over half of the world’s ever-growing energy demand. As economies grow and populations increase the oil and gas industry will continue to provide large portions of this increased demand. Quartic’s oil and gas courses, delivered in conjunction with our partner, provide an introduction for students from all backgrounds (including non-technical) to this vitally important and ever-evolving industry, the challenges it faces and the opportunities it presents.
Quartic’s economics course focuses on the cash flow of the oil and gas industry - where money is spent, where it is earned and what we can do to minimize risk.
Our industry overview courses provide an excellent introduction to the industry, suitable for those with no prior industry experience. Our courses cover both the oil and gas value chains providing and introduction to key areas of the industry including exploration and production, reserves, crude oil prices and valuation, refining, petrochemicals and supply and distribution. These courses can be tailored to our clients’ needs and delivered online over 2-5 days depending on preference. Courses are interactive with exercises, worked examples, quizzes and real-life examples.
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.
Refineries perform a vital role in the oil and gas value chain. They convert crude oil into the familiar products which fuel much of the world’s transportation, industry and residential and commercial activity. Refiners face many pressures – increasingly stringent environmental requirements, challenging business environments, decreased demand in a post-COVID society. However, refining remains key to our modern lives and new refineries are being built in many areas of the world.
This course provides an introduction to the processes and economics of refining. The material is easily accessible for those from a non-technical background and also provides an excellent overview of the whole refining business for those who want to expand their understanding.
We provide various training courses and workshops which focus on the structure, terms and conditions and implementation of the contracts covering international crude oil and petroleum product sales and purchases, together with the related transactions such as shipping and storage. The course detailed below is an example of one of these, but we can also “tailor” a program to fit the client’s needs.
