About the course

Could you answer the following three questions for your next project? What will it cost? What is it worth? Will it earn sufficient profit? Before undertaking any project, these questions should be answered. This course will provide the fundamentals necessary to enable you to do so. Budgeting and financing, and contractual arrangements, which also significantly impact the economic viability of a project, are covered. Participants practice cash flow techniques for economic evaluations and investigate frequently encountered situations. Participants are invited to submit their own economic problems, if appropriate.

Designed For

Managers, engineers, explorationists, field accounting supervisors and other personnel who need to develop or improve their skill and understanding of basic economic analysis and profitability of petroleum exploration and production. Due to similarity in content, recommends that participants take this course if they have no previous experience in this subject. For participants with more exposure to the subject, please review the Economics of Worldwide Petroleum Production description as its course content is more advanced than either Basic Petroleum Economics or Expanded Basic Petroleum Economics. Take one or the other, but not both courses.
