What you will learn

In this short course, you will learn about the Downstream segment of the Oil and Gas industry through 4 modules:

  • Introduction to Downstream
  • Introduction to Refining
  • Introduction to Supply & Trade
  • Introduction to Product Marketing

Description

Most of us are completely unaware that we are active participants in the downstream segment of the oil and gas industry. When you pump gas in your car, take medications, cook, fly or utilize one of the thousands of products made from crude oil in your day-to-day, you are using a byproduct of crude oil. But how does crude oil become all of these products that allow our modern society to function? How does refining work? How is crude oil traded? What are some of the factors that influence prices of byproducts of crude oil?

These questions and more are answered in this easy-to-follow video course designed as a non-technical introduction to the downstream segment of the oil and gas industry. In about 1 hour, we will cover 4 main modules containing an overview of downstream, refining, supply & trade and product marketing.

Prerequisite:

We assume that you have no prior knowledge of oil and gas. While you may take it as a stand alone course, it’s highly recommended that you also take the upstream and midstream courses which will help you understand how the crude oil gets to the refineries in first place.

A quiz is included at the end of the course to help you validate the knowledge gained. Upon successful completion, you will earn a certification and 1 hr Professional Development Hour (PDH).
