Course title: Energy Fundamentals
Course Code: ESCF
Course summary: The 4-day course Energy Fundamentals explains the value chain from upstream to downstream for oil, gas and coal, and examines how renewable forms of energy fit in to the overall energy supply-demand picture. This course looks at the economics of exploration and production for each of the major fossil fuels, and the value chain that links these upstream developments with the final consumer in the power sector, industry, transport, commercial and residential. The supply and demand for each of the fuels is analysed on a regional basis, with balances in each region being built up into a model of typical trade flows. This course looks at he whole value chain from the extraction and processing of the various fuels, through to storage and distribution and ultimately the retail network.
