First Course for WBC in Jakarta

It was a week of firsts:  WBC’s first course in Jakarta and Colin Marshall delivering his first course as a WBC associate.  The 3 Day MBA in Oil and Gas had  attendees from consultancies, oil companies and service companies. The course ran in February at the excellent Park Lane hotel.

Run over 3 days, the course included a specialist talk from Colin on the oil and gas scene in SE Asia.  The various countries were presented with an update on licensing and exploration performance.  It was noted that generally performance had been poor and the region is unattractive to many IOCs.  The likely response of governments was also discussed.

As usual with our courses, the sessions were highly interactive, with everyone participating enthusiastically over the 3 days.  All the delegates were focused and contributed to the exercises and case studies of oil and gas management in a low oil price regime. The exploration business simulation provided a great stimuli for debate, and there was a good discussion on the value of information.

Delegates gave the course full marks on content and delivery – and clearly also developed a good network amongst themselves, something we always aim for on our courses too.  Thank you to Colin and our local partner, Benchmark Training, for making the programme memorable.
