The Fundamentals of Oil & Gas Production Engineering course will be of great benefit to non-technical personnel needing to understand how petroleum production can be maximised in the field.

It is also ideal for petroleum engineers, process engineers, development geologists, oilfield production managers and field engineers who need more specialised knowledge of production engineering.
