This six-week program is devoted to the midstream and downstream petroleum value chain with emphasis on technology, commercial fundamentals, and global markets for a wide range of petroleum processes and products. Weekly sessions include three hours of individual e-Learning and one-hour virtual session with an IHRDC mentor, who discusses the weekly learnings and introduces the business simulation assignments. Participants are then asked to evaluate alternatives and make decisions with respect to the midstream and downstream development of the West Africa project simulation assignment for that week.
