What is a course in oil and gas and what does it contain? The oil and gas industry is constructed of several different departments working together, so the focus of a course may vary depending on your selected topic of interest. However, a general oil and gas course concentrates on the oil and gas management system, how to implement it and efficient methods of problem solving.
Taking a course in oil and gas can prove to be beneficial, whether you end up working within the industry or not. Many of the management and operational methods that are taught throughout the courses are transcendent across different industries, so such a class can prepare you to work in a range of fields and in different capacities.
The cost of a course will vary depending on the institution you choose to attend, as well as the focus of the course you select. Whether you study on campus or online can also affect the cost.
Taking an oil and gas course can prepare you for different career paths, though becoming an engineer is the most common option. With the management skills that are taught, you may also pursue a job within management or human resource. Accounting is also a possible option if you have previous accounting experience or coursework. All the aforementioned options have been and are expected to continue to be quite lucrative career paths.

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.
