More about Professional Courses for the Energy Industry

Training and Courses for the Energy Industry

Energy, sometimes referred to as the world's "ultimate resource", can generally be divided into two main categories: renewable energy and non-renewable energy. Non-renewable energy, which has historically been the dominant form, is produced mainly from fossil fuels (coal, petroleum, natural gas) and is characterised by the fact that its sources are finite. Companies are now investigating new, unconventional energy resources of fossil fuels, due to the more accessible conventional sources running low. 
Conversely, renewable energy sources such as sun, wind, flowing water, heat, or biomass are replenished with the passage of time, either via biological reproduction or naturally recurring processes. Nuclear energy lies somewhere in between these two categories as it is much cleaner than traditional fossil fuels, making it comparable with renewable sources, but is at the same time based on the availability of uranium deposits, which are finite in the same way as coal, oil and gas.

Energy companies can usually be characterised according to the energy source(s) they focus on and, as a result, training courses for energy professionals tend to follow these divisions as well. Naturally, all energy companies, regardless of their exact focus, will need both technical and non-technical personnel to function effectively. This is reflected in the range of courses available, which are not only dedicated to engineers and on-site staff, but also to project managers, corporate planners, accountants, lawyers and other non-technical professionals working in the energy industry.

Training and Job Opportunities in the Oil & Gas Industry

The oil & gas sector is currently one of the fastest growing in the wider energy industry. With many governments around the world aiming to boost the sector with dedicated employment, tax relief and funding measures, it is expected to continue to grow even as investments are simultaneously earmarked for alternative or renewable energy projects. The USA is the world's largest energy user and producer, ahead of China and Russia.

Training courses in oil & gas are available in a number of areas and for a range of professional roles, including:

  • Drilling Technologies
  • Pipeline Egineering & Construction
  • Exploration & Production
  • Field Development
  • Project Management
  • Economics & Modelling
  • Agreements & Contracts
  • Logistics & Transport

The complexity of the oil and gas sector and the many commercial, regulatory and technical developments that constantly surround oil & gas activities make it a challenging but rewarding area of activity for technical and non-technical personnel alike.
