|“Dr. Cronshaw effectively presents petroleum economics in a style that is very entertaining and understandable to the non-economist.”
“Excellent course delivered by a talented and very experienced instructor who was able to engage course attendees effectively for the duration of the course even though it was delivered virtually.”
“Dr. Cronshaw…teaches technical concepts in a non-technical way. As he puts it, we first learn to ‘crawl so we can walk’. I would highly recommend this course for any professional working in the energy industry.”
“Very informative and interactive course that dove into the overview of the oil and gas industry, also was able to further my understanding and execution of energy economics.”
How do I make optimal decisions when the future is uncertain?
Is it worth investing in something to reduce costs?
Do we gather information to reduce uncertainty, such as seismic, or not?
This course will help you answer these questions. The instructor, Mark Cronshaw, introduces the economics concepts, strategies and basic tools utilized in the oil and gas industry which are needed to learn how to assess the economic attractiveness in the face of uncertainty.
You will learn how and why applying the following ‘tools’ will help you make better decisions and how to recognize attractive opportunities and avoid bad ones:
Optimal Choice; Decline Curves; Reserves; Cash Flow; Before and After Tax Economics; Discount Rate; Incremental, Acquisition, and Exploration Economics; Value of Information; Monte Carlo Methods; plus a basic understanding of oil and gas.
Oil and gas companies routinely use these economic tools to make decisions about investments and divestitures. This course provides an overview of the entire oil and gas industry (upstream, midstream, and downstream), will teach upstream economics, and introduces the economic decision-making tools used to make high stakes decisions in uncertain environments.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND PETROLEUM ECONOMICS?
* Managers and senior executive use economics to make capital decisions, and economics analysis is used both for investments and divestitures
* Optimal oil and gas decisions and operations enhance the success of a company, which in turn, enhances your career
