Course Description


Oil & Gas projects are becoming increasingly challenging as our global hydrocarbon resources are being steadily depleted. This means drilling and extracting from deeper wells, in more remote locations, and in increasingly complex environments. As technology improves, we find that we are able to cope with many of these challenges through the latest technological advancements.
