The petroleum industry includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (often by oil tankers and pipelines), and marketing petroleum products. The upstream sector, or more commonly known as Exploration & Production (E&P) is more focus in searching for potential underground or underwater crude oil and natural gas fields, drilling exploratory wells, and subsequently drilling and operating the wells that recover and bring the crude oil and/or raw natural gas to the surface.

In the current challenging landscape of oil & gas industry, it is so vital that everyone who involve directly or indirectly with the industry to understand and appreciate the life-cycle of an oilfield. This course gives an overall picture of industry-specific functionality together with an appreciation of the challenges to produce hydrocarbons and an understanding of where the different job roles are involved.

At the end of the day, the delegates will have an understanding of each upstream phases from exploration to decommissioning. Delegates also will gain an appreciation of the geological, technical and economic aspects of the industry, features of the onshore and offshore environments, as well as the exploration, development and production phases.
