International LNG Business Management Certificate Program


June 19 – 30, 2017


This two-week, major capital project program is ideal for those who wish to learn how major LNG projects are developed, from concept to operation. Unit one is devoted to LNG fundamentals including LNG market history, pricing and trends; major players along the LNG value chain; application of Stages 1 and 2 of the Stage-Gate process; LNG project assessment and development planning: from supply to delivery including, gas resources, gas field development, LNG technologies, and major commercial requirements.

Unit two reflects how LNG and other major oil and gas capital projects are completed on time and within budget. It is devoted to the application of Stages 3-5 of the Stage-Gate process: from commissioning the Front-End Engineering (FEED) study to obtaining Final Investment Decision (FID); planning, selecting, and managing EPC contracting, commissioning, and, after in-service, project reappraisal, startup, and operation.


For detailed information on each unit of this program, please access the Unit 1 and Unit 2 tabs above.


This program will benefit managers, government officials, and specialists in one or more functional areas of the international energy industry who seek a comprehensive understanding of the liquefied natural gas sector of the international gas industry and/or how major oil and gas industry capital projects are successfully managed. It is an ideal supplement to IHRDC’s gas industry foundation program, the International Gas Business Management Certificate Program, which many participants refer to as the best program in the industry today.
