US shale gas revolution: Training needed to meet demand, says IHS

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

IHS research has shown that a shale gas revolution is underway in the US, capable of revitalising the petrochemical industry; encouraging more than US$ 217 billion in new downstream capital investments and generating a crude oil production capacity increase of more than 52 billion bpd over the next six years. This investment is creating new jobs and attracting people to the industry. However, many of these individuals lack the specialised training and skills required to compete.

For this reason, the IHS has announced plans to provide new public courses designed to educate both new and seasoned professional on current industry fundamentals.

The IHS Professional Training and Education Program: Chemical and Energy Series now includes new, three day, open education courses aimed at providing attendees with the basic framework needed to understand and cope with changing dynamics. The 2013 public courses will launch in Houston in June, and follow in London, Shanghai, Singapore, Dubai, Sao Paolo, Frankfurt, Houston (additional session), Beijing, and San Francisco/Santa Clara, California.
