Course Description

Portfolio Management of Oil and Gas Assets Successful oil and gas companies constantly review, value and risk their assets with a view to optimising the overall performance of their asset portfolio. This activity requires a strategic approach to managing uncertainty, exploiting synergies and ensuring they maintain a balanced and diversified mix of assets. Modern portfolio techniques involve the construction of sophisticated models to value risk and characterise alternative combinations of assets. Such models can provide a range of graphical displays to aid decision-making, such as feasible envelopes and efficient frontiers defined in terms of financial and non-financial metrics over defined planning horizons. However, in order to use such techniques effectively it is important to understand their theoretical basis and practical consequences. Many companies still fail to apply portfolio optimisation techniques objectively, due to poorly constructed models, lack of understanding of potential asset interactions and a range of human and corporate organisational issues. Using portfolio management techniques to make successful decisions can only be achieved with confidence if comprehensive technical, financial and risk assessment and ranking of the individual assets are involved. This course addresses portfolio management from theoretical and practical perspectives applicable to assets from along the oil and gas supply chain. Exercises concentrate mainly on upstream asset portfolios, but do address the involvement of mid?stream and downstream assets and other non-petroleum energy assets in the context of balanced portfolios. Course materials include presentations, exercises and discussions facilitating delegate participation. The course information should help delegates to identify and select appropriate portfolio management techniques to suit their particular mix of assets. The skills and industry insight provided by the course will be of value to corporate, portfolio and asset-based decision-makers.
