How did others evaluate the course?
“When I took the course, I was relatively new to the gas industry and I wanted to take a course that would offer me a good and relevant overview of the value chain in the sector. I must say that the course was very interesting and enlightening. What appealed to me was that many of the lecturers were senior field experts who know this business very well and know how to bring matters across. As I work in the downstream part of the chain, it was very interesting to learn more about the upstream part and the issues the people there encounter and have to solve… and how they do it. I also learned much more about the international aspects of our sector. What was really interesting to me was to learn about the impact of international political decisions on our industry. Was the course relevant to my day-to-day job? Oh, absolutely. It gave me a better insight in aspects that are not directly in my field of view, but that I do need to take into account.”
