This course is a great introduction and overview to the fundamentals of Petroleum Industry Economics. Mr. Henderson has a vast knowledge of the subject and very much enjoyed his instruction.

This course is very useful for those who are looking for general knowledge about the economics in oil & gas. The instructor has a large experience in the oil & gas industry and makes use of real cases during the course.

This course is meant for someone very new to the industry. Discussions and examples are very general.

A tremendous amount of information is provided to each participant in the form of working excel models, slides and case studies. Gerald's industry experience is impressive and his personality is friendly and engaging.

My only disappointment from this course is knowing that I've only scratched the surface of Mr. Henderson's knowledge.

Very good course! Great discussions on world events and producers and how they effect the oil/gas price. Review the economics of projects and learn to determine their value through NPV, ROR and IRR.

Overall a valuable course and a good refresher of many concepts taught in a business school. The instructor shared stories from his wealth of experience in the industry, which was helpful.

Covered a broad range of topics, overall a good introductory course on petroleum economics.

Overall, this course was great, and I walked away with a better sence of petroleum economics. This course helps you understand the elements that go into these economics, and gives a good snapshot of the petroleum world on a global scale. One thing I would have liked from this course was more basic information and to complete more hands-on calculations. Other than this, the instructor was very knowledgeable, open to increasing your understanding and providing insightful thoughts into the petroleum industry.

The training was good but too costly. It should have more than an Instructor to add panache and verve to it. It should be more participatory. There should have been time out for participants to unwind by visiting some places of interest. after all, all work without play, would ensure boredom.

The course instructor has a significant amount of experience and knowledge on the chosen topics. That being said, the course material is very poor. If you are someone who likes to look back and re-read material you will be disappointed. Good course but not worth $2700.

Having taken economics/finance courses in an academic setting, I really appreciated the instructor's perspective as someone who applies the concepts in the field every day.

The event was really good, I would take it again!

The facilitator shared great information during the three days. The only problem was that the slides where not well put together. The presentation in general needs more structure and all the visual side of it needs to be redone by a powerpoint expert.

Interesting course with a very seasoned instructor able to solve a wide variety of questions
