This course provides practical guidance in the application of the techniques of the economic analysis currently used in the oil & gas industry. It covers the techniques which assist in:

  • Making investment decisions under different fiscal structure
  • Carrying out cash flow analysis
  • Determining economic indicators
  • Analyzing and quantifying risk
  • Evaluating uncertainty and sensitivity analysis


By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Analyze the economic viability of various petroleum development projects
  • Evaluate various investment opportunities
  • Carry out a comprehensive cash flow calculation
  • Incorporate inflation and project financing
  • Study the application of different depreciation methods
  • Determine and compare different economic indicators
  • Carry out risk analysis and decision tree analysis for decision makin
