Introduction to Oil and Gas
OPITO's Introduction to the Oil and Gas industry
OPITO’s ‘Introduction to the Oil and Gas Industry’ e-Learning course is designed to support the induction of newcomers to the industry - giving individuals, looking to work in technical and commercial roles, the opportunity to explore the world of oil and gas in an interactive and stimulating environment.
The programme gives an overall picture of industry-specific functionality together with an appreciation of the challenges to produce hydrocarbons and an understanding of where the different job roles are involved.
There are six knowledge modules and a final assessment:
Module 1: Characteristics of Oil and Gas
Module 2: Exploration, Surveys and Drilling Rights
Module 3: Drilling Rigs and Drilling a Well
Module 4: Exploration and Development Drilling
Module 5: Production and Work-over
Module 6: Oil and Gas Transportation and Decommissioning
At the end of all 6 modules the participant will complete an assessment in which a score of 80% or above must be attained to pass. If the participant fails to pass the assessment on the first attempt they will be given a second attempt.
If the participant passes on either the first or the second attempt they will receive a certificate of completion which they will be able to print.
