The must study oil and gas logistics and supply chain course for upstream supply base operators

Exploration and Production Logistics - professional development training course

Boost your knowledge of supply base operations and maximise the efficiency of oil and gas logistics for the onshore and offshore E&P supply chain

The petroleum industry operates in just about every imaginable geographic and climatic region across the world, including some of the most extreme conditions known. Wherever operations are taking place they are dependent upon a complex network of transport and supply in order to deliver the people, materials and equipment where they are needed, when they are needed.

Many of the people who are dependent upon logistics services are not aware of the complexity, variety and indispensability of the activities involved in providing this support. Much logistics activity is generic and is common to all industries and ventures, but the oil and gas exploration and production industry frequently presents unique and challenging problems that often have to be overcome utilising creativity and business acumen.

Also available for dedicated in-company delivery by distance learning or instructor led workshops

The performance of the upstream supply chain is critical to highly asset intensive exploration and production success, with optimisation of the logistics function at a strategic and operational level being a real value creating opportunity.  But this needs excellent specialist sector knowledge and understanding from everyone directly and indirectly involved.

For anyone involved in, or dependent upon, exploration and production logistics, this programme provides an indispensable overview and detailed analysis of the supply chain.

Being delivered by part-time distance learning, this oil and gas logistics course gives you the freedom to learn while you work. All materials are made available online, and you have access to expert tutorial support and peer networking via a dedicated online forum.  You can also download the core study modules, so you get to keep a ready reference guide.

This course delivers the key knowledge professionals require to:

  • Gain a detailed understanding of logistics within the E&P sector of the oil and gas business
  • Enhance practical understanding of remote location logistics
  • Examine the full cycle of logistics from procurement and inventory management, to storage and care of the wide range of materials required for complex operations
  • Explore the various types of transport used to move people and equipment in a timely manner
  • Analyse the impact of global trade complexities and management issues
