Management of Unconventional Gas Projects
This program is designed for individuals who seek a comprehensive and practical understanding of the processes that are applied in the development of upstream petroleum projects, by looking at one of today’s most active investment areas in order to illustrate the management process with a case study of:
- A coal seam gas (CSG/CBM) project onshore in Queensland, Australia. This CBM/CSG project will provide gas to various markets, including the local grid and power generation facilities, as well as to an LNG plant for export.
Using the industry accepted “stage-gate process,” teams of participants are asked to plan the Exploration and Development phases
of the project from early exploration, through the delineation and pilot stage, to a final subsurface field development plan and FEED
specs. Each team is then asked to recommend if the project represents an attractive investment opportunity.
Learning sessions will consist of:
- One-third lectures by two IHRDC specialists; and
- Two-thirds team participation in challenging workshop sessions that allow the teams to undertake the step-by-step development of an upstream CSG/CBM opportunity using IHRDC’s E&P project management digital simulator.
