Some different gas courses include hydrocarbons essentials, 3D seismic attributes for reservoir characterization and acid gas compression and injection. The courses range in subject topics such as exploration, production, transportation, refining and distribution.
Courses that focus on the oil and gas industry have been created to help keep those in the industry up to date on the trends, technological advances and professional developments in the field. Exploration and production are the two forms of the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry. The courses in this sector deal with the processes and equipment that bring crude oil and natural gas out of the ground.
Transportation and storage are the two forms of the midstream sector of the oil and gas industry. The courses in this sector deal with pipeline technologies, pumps and artificial lift systems on top of how to safely transport crude oil and natural gas.
The downstream sector of the oil and gas industry deals with the refining, production and distribution of crude oil and natural gases. The courses in the downstream sector cover the process of refining the natural resources before they are provided to consumers. The process of creating gas like that used in motor vehicles is one of the processes taught in courses about the downstream sectors.
