COURSE FACILITATOR
Betty J. Simkins, Ph.D.

The focus of this three-day course will be on how value is created in the
energy value chain. This will equip attendees with leading-edge skills to create
value for their own company, regardless of the segment in the energy value
chain that they work.
The energy value chain involves the process of linking specific functions from
input to output (i.e., from upstream, midstream, through downstream) to
enhance the economic value of the business throughout the value chain.
As a result, attendees will gain an understanding of how each segment of the
energy firms activities add value along the energy value chain. This will also
help them better understand their own role in the value chain and how it
relates to others in their company and to the industry.
Throughout the course, best practices will be taught in each segment and
a lot of case studies will be utilized so that participants can apply
concepts learned to real case analysis.

Key benefits from attending this course:


Understand the big picture of energy value chain how this relates to
daily business decisions
Gain an understanding of how each segment of the energy firms
activities add value along the energy value chain
Understand your own role in the value chain and how it relates to others in
their company and to the industry

Learn market fundamentals & risk management specific to the energy
sector
