Fundamentals of Finance, Accounting & Project Investment Analysis in Oil & Gas

This 3-day separately book-able course is not designed to skill Oil & Gas engineers to be accountants, but
to give participants the confidence and ability to communicate with accountants and finance managers and
to improve their own financial decision making.
For engineering professionals, a high level of technical expertise is no longer sufficient for superior
management performance. Oil & Gas engineering professionals who wish to succeed in the resources
industry are required to develop skills beyond their core functional knowledge. An understanding of financial
information and management, and an awareness of the economic theory that drives value creation, are an
integral part of the managers required suite of skills.
This course is specifically designed for those with engineering training from the Oil & Gas sector and
requires only basic mathematical ability as a pre-requisite. The course is presented in a manner that
reduces the jargon to basic principles and applies them to numerous real life examples.
