With rising oil and gas production taking place across North America, hydrocarbon transportation is proving more challenging than ever. The rise of MLP’s, more public involvement, and new production coming online from non-traditional regions have forced upstream and midstream players to work very closely in order to bring new production to market. Over this one-day pipeline fundamentals course, you will learn about the fundamentals of the midstream industry, while getting in-depth on some of the key issues that are affecting today’s midstream movements. This course was built in collaboration with a number of North American midstream operators and has become a signature Oak Leaf course.
