This was very useful and necessary course for anyone working within an oil & gas company and have suggested that we repeat it every year. The teaching style of the instructor was excellent as he was very well structured and used relevant practical examples.

Sharing knowledge of E&P – Learn from the experts


At OPC we provide high quality training and educational courses on a wide range of topics within the oil and gas industry.  All of our training programmes are hosted and delivered by experienced and industry-recognised tutors – many of whom regularly lecture in collaboration with leading institutions, such as the SPE, Imperial College, London and the Institut Français du Petrole.

Bespoke Training to meet your needs

The majority of our training is delivered through bespoke courses developed to meet the specific requirements of an individual client and the specific training needs of their people. Training is delivered at the client’s location, at a suitable off-site training centre or via a dedicated live video and screen-sharing technology.  It is frequently supported by additional mentoring and ongoing support for the client’s staff.

Our training encompasses a wide range of topics, all of which are key knowledge areas within the oil and gas sector:

  • General Oil and Gas Management
  • Geosciences (Geology, Geophysics and Petrophysics)
  • Drilling Operations
  • Reservoir and Production Engineering
  • Economics and Commercial
  • Field Development Planning
  • Facilities

OPC Technical Training Services (TTS) develops and delivers technical workshop style training, always tailored to specific client requirements and to individual attendees. Our workshops are aimed at developing a unified approach to developing industry best practices to addressing key technical issues in an organisation.

OPC TTS this year added competency based training analysis to our training capability, designed for oil and gas organisations with an identified skills gap. OPC provide a full Gap Analysis that will identify areas where improvements and change can be made to deliver a positive long term return on investment in human capital.
