This program will present the principles and best practices of portfolio management in the upstream (E&P) oil and gas industry. It will also examine how the downstream elements of a vertically integrated oil company can be treated in the total portfolio. The course content is equally valuable to small independents, large integrated international companies and national oil companies.
The course consists of a number of lectures supported by practical exercises and syndicate discussions. Particular emphasis is given to pragmatic portfolio management approaches and solutions which can be implemented swiftly without recourse to major investment in planning and portfolio management software. The course will draw on examples taken from the presenter’s 35 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry.
Participants will gain proficiency in portfolio management techniques, understand how and why to undertake this activity and be able to apply key concepts directly in the business of their teams/divisions.
