Top Course Studies in Energy Studies

Energy Studies

A course provides the opportunity to focus on a subject within a larger area of interest. For people working in the energy industries, a course can supplement work experience to advance a career in solar, oil and gas, or other energy-generating industries.

Those thinking about their professional development may ask, what is a Course in Energy? Energy industries expand their reach every day. Oil and gas continue to be relevant and sought-after resources as solar and wind power find their way into more communities. A course in energy can illuminate the basic principles and uses of solar energy, including how it functions with an electric distribution network. It may discuss the complexities of solar installations. An oil and gas course may cover the state of the industry worldwide. It may include geology, geophysics and reserves calculations, drilling and field development, environmental protection, tax legislation and reporting, and negotiation and team management.

The benefits of a course in energy are many. If a person has worked directly in the field, a course can expand his or her theoretical understanding of energy and how it functions as an industry. It opens up opportunities to work at a variety of levels within an energy-focused company, and increases earning potential.

Courses in energy vary in duration and cost depending on the school. Contact individual admissions offices directly for their fee schedules and tuition rates.

Career opportunities in energy include power line installers, repair people, equipment testers, power plant operators and technicians. Renewable energy companies need wind power technicians, solar panel manufacturers and installers. Construction projects that incorporate renewable energy components are considered to be within the energy sector. Electricians and plumbers who have the knowledge and skill to work with new materials and techniques are critical to new construction.

Rationale of the Training Course - Eco-Cities: Policies for Sustainable Energy

 

Half the world’s population now live in built-up areas, with an estimated 60 million people being added every year. This rapid urban growth leads to environmental degradation and excessive demands on services and infrastructure. Energy consumption has increased drastically. To address this it is necessary to develop sustainable urban energy policies and best practices in efficient land use, transport, sustainable buildings and sustainable development overall.

Oil and Gas Partnerships

University of Tulsa College of Business Administration
Campus Part time 2 days June 2018 USA Tulsa Toledo + 1 more

This seminar addresses the common and often intricate transactions faced by oil and gas tax partnerships using a building block approach. [+]

Unlike the standard partnership tax class, this two day seminar focuses upon the specific issues encountered by oil and gas partnerships. The Federal income tax treatment of an oil and gas partnership is unique in the sense that the tax rules of subchapter K of the IRC are applied in a different manner to oil and gas exploration and production than any other type of business. This uniqueness stems from the fact that Sec. 613A requires that the basis of oil and gas property is held outside of the partnership by each partner and the partner computes depletion, gain and loss independent of the partnership. 

 

No other extractive industry works this way. For example, coal, iron, etc. – the partnership holds the basis of the mineral property and computes gain and loss on its mineral properties and then allocates depletion, gains and losses to the partners.  This has many tangent effects that are explored by this seminar. Having to go through this maze of regulations and rules alone can be a bit confusing – after all it took the IRS over 15 years to issue final regulations under Sec. 613A – primarily because of the partnership issues.  ...
