3 Streams: Hydrocarbons Essentials offers essential knowledge about the North American oil and gas sector, covering upstream, midstream, and downstream activities. Over five days, you will learn about the activities occurring all along the Oil & Gas value chain: land acquisition, exploration, drilling, production, transportation, storage, refining, end-use, policy, regulation, and compliance. Each course day will be led by an expert in the area.
There will be activities, video clips, group case studies, and brief knowledge assessments throughout the course. Participants should bring laptops for Excel modelling exercises (all models developed and provided by Oak Leaf). Each participant will receive an information-filled course binder.
There will be two field trips during the course to facilities located across the street from the course venue:
- University of Calgary Simulation & Visualization Centre for reservoir analysis using cutting-edge 3D seismic visualization technology
- Government of Alberta Core Research Centre for a tour of the facility and to learn how drilling core samples can provide insight into the presence of hydrocarbons in a reservoir
