The beauty of this course is it is short but give vital informations. This course give complete overwview of Oil & Gas Industry, right from the exploration to selling of final petroleum products like gasoline and diesel on fuel stations. I want to thanks professor Lincoln Pratson for teaching such complicated concepts in laymans language. He tailored this course professionally.

Good overall introduction to O&G. As an upstream O&G professional, it was useful for learning more about the midstream and downstream aspects of the business.
My only suggestion would be to fix some graphics so that oil charts as a green line, condensate / natural gas liquids plot as orange, dry natural gas plots as red, and water plots as blue (internal industry conventions).

The course was well structured. I got an idea of various processes relating to oil and gas industry such as exploration, drilling and production in case of oil and gas industry operations. Along with this, oil and gas markets are explained. This part basically covers things like what are benchmarks, how to decide price of oil and gas, what is the future of oil and gas, etc.

A great course indeed! It covers all important aspects and has also successfully removed many myths regarding the industry and its operations. Pictures and illustrations explain the topics in a nice manner. Nicely designed quizzes and Project makes it a complete course for beginners and also for mid-level practitioners of the industry. Highly recommended!

All courses and videos had a very good connectivity and included all the necessary information about oil and gas. I think this course helps even someone who has know idea about oil and gas learning about the operations and markets on this field. To conclude it was a pleasant course with spherical ideas and a very efficient way of testing what you learn.

Very enjoyable course, with easy to understand explanations and graphics provided by professor Pratson. Although coming from a field engineering job in the industry, I learned many things I did not know during my 3 year tenure in the Colombian plains working for a service company. Very recommended for first comers and for veterans who want a refresher.
por RADEN G R D W•
Coursera oil and gas are very fun and adds to my knowledge as a chemical engineering student at one of the Parahyangan Catholic Universities. The material and delivery are easy to understand, besides that the material presented is quite complete and includes a pdf so that if one day is needed, you can read and re-read the pdf. Thanks, Duke University.

This course provides a very good opportunity to understand at least the minimum about oil and gas operations and the market. Even with my specific formation related to oil and gas and my experience working at this market I could learn new things and enjoy the time spent watching the classes.
Thank you professor Lincoln Pratson!
por RAMON R•
Excellent course that gives us an overview, starting from the exploration of areas with possible hydrocarbon accumulations, the reservoir analysis process, the drilling and putting into production of the field, the treatment and distribution of oil and gas products and the sale of these derivatives that make the world progress.
por MTume D L•
This is a great course for people who want to understand in general the oil and gas industry from starting point in Upstream all the way to the last details in downstream distribution at gas stations. You will get a full understanding of the oil and gas supply chain and the costs and revenues involved in all the transactions.
por Aziken R•
The course was very educative, got a glimpse summmary of the Oil and Gas Industry. From upstream sectot to midstream sector, to downstream sector, and also the future of Oil and Gas Industry.
I will have to research and learn from work exeperience in my field of work to harness the skills and knowledge, I have learnt so far.
por Srimali M•
Actually, this is my first experience of following an online course with a foreign university. The Oil & Gas Industry Operations and Markets course is a very interesting as well as valuable course. The content as well as the Mr. Lincoln's teaching skills pretty much helped me to complete the course successfully. Thank you !
por Ilgiz D•
The course helped me deeper understand the specifics of the Oil&Gas Industry, its processes and other crucial things. In addition, the way of presenting lectures is pretty precise and clear. The course would be quite useful for those who is seeking for knowledge both in Petroleum Engineering and Petroleum Economics.
por Eirini D•
The course gives a lot of information that cant be found all together in any other source. The learning objects are presented as smooth as possible and since it is a 2 week course you don't get tiered of it. I liked it a lot and I will sure go through it again to be more comfortable with all the new info I learned.
por Seng Y G•
The course provides good fundamental understanding of the petroleum industry in a broad range of topics including reserve classification, petroleum economics, oil & gas formation 101, etc. to participants with no geology or engineering background. Highly recommended to anyone who is interested in the said topics.
