Global Oil & Gas covers the North American industry but also examines what is happening in the rest of the world. This is important not only to those who wish to understand energy-related developments in the Middle East, South America, Asia, or elsewhere but also to people looking to grasp how those events affect the industry in their home country or region. Our instructors have worked in North America, Africa, Asia, and Europe and understand the interconnectedness of the industry, adding their insights to the comprehensive course materials.
