Very good course about the Oil and Gas Industry Operations. The professor explains the content clearly and precisely and with the help of many pictures and graphics, what has been learned is shown in each video. The course is very interesting and also intensive. The number of hours was a lot higher for me because I also made a lot of notes. The final company profile also took some time to complete. But it was all very worthwhile in terms of content. I was very interested in the topic and I am happy to have completed this course.

I found the course excellent. Its content and flow of information is very knowledgeable. This course provides valuable insights into highly complex oil gas sector integrated operations and marketing, learning on entire value chain from exploration, evaluation, production through refining, transport and markets in the exact way as the business operates.
My special thanks to Lincoln F. Pratson from Duke University for his dedicated teaching and making us learn fine points of the hydrocarbon sector operations & markets.

Although is a short course, is an excellent beginning to the oil and gas industry process, with less than 5 minutes per video, the professor explains all the concepts in an easy way, and the quizzes help to reinforce the learned concepts. With this course you can learn how the hydrocarbons are extracted from the reservoir, which characteristics defines the price of oil, natural gas and gasoline, which products are derived from petrol and the effect of crisis in one of the most profitable industry of the world.

Many thanks to Duke University and Professor Pratson for such an interesting course! It was intensive and productive for me and fullfiled all my expectations. So this course gives a student broad pattern of international oil and gas markets, supported by statistical meters. What is more it gives a broad description of oil and gas production and refinery without deeping in much chemistry and physics. The final project is also very interesting and would be a nice attachment to a person's portfolio.

In my opinion the course was well developed because it is an overview about what is and means the oil and gas industry from the main characteristics of the petroleum, its extraction until the comecialization but at the same time the course had enough time to talk about the legal and economical structure of an oil and gas company.
In a few word, this is a pretty well introductory course in this area. Now, it is importan create another course more specific.
Thanks to educate and my best regards.

Excellent coverage of the entire value chain in the oil and gas industry. The course covers both the technological and the commercial aspects related to oil and gas.

The peer review assignment is one of its kind as it involves a extensive research about the company and while reviewing your peers work you get information about a lot of oil and gas companies spread across different geographies.

As a fresh chemical and biochemical engineer looking for jobs or pursuing my graduate degree, I found this course insightful as it provided an overview of the entire gas operations in addition to markets. I concluded that crude oil processing or unconventional resources are possible fields of interest. The videos were concise, well explained and supported with graphs and visits to sights or showcasing of shale rocks. I enjoyed this course and finished it in less than a week!

I have been trying different sources to gain insight into the Oil and Gas Industry. The fall of WTI crude price below zero amidst the Covid-19 crisis and Oil war confused me. This course by Mr Pratson covers complete information on this industry from exploration to market. The course best explains how the price changes and what are the driving parameters. The best thing about this course is that it covers more information in less time.

Thorough and detailed for a person not worked in Oil & Gas sector. Enjoyed reading the course through its structured pattern. Lectures were clear and the notes below the video lectures aided in my reads (multiple times so that I could internalise the concepts). Practical oriented and hands-on for interview purposes.
Thanks to Prof Lincoln Pratson, Duke University and Course Era platform.

I would like to thank Professor Lincoln Pratson, from Duke University, for sharing part of his experience, teaching a lot about "Oil and Gas Industry: Operations and Market". It was two long and enjoyable weeks learning more (and sharing my point of view) about the energy industry. It is always a great pleasure for me to be aware of the changes and trends of the global market. Hope to learn more from you soon.
von Neeraj K•
This course sets the tone for knowing essentials of Oil and Gas. Its biggest advantage is that it provides a structured knowledge so that we know what to know about the industry. I would strongly recommend to anyone who has interest in knowing essentials of oil and gas. Though, I would recommend that the course should have more inputs about markets like China and India and some policy coverage.
von Larry W•
I have enjoyed this course immensely, thought due to some personal issues I didn't quite get to put the amount of time into it that I had hoped to. I found it very enlightening regardless and believe it has given me a better understanding of the environment which I work around. I greatly appreciate our professor, Coursera, and Duke University for having put this together and made this possible.
von Lenis G•
A complete overview of the oil & gas industry, that has widened my tiny knowledge of the sector, which only concerned exploration stage. I highly recommend this course to everyone, especially if they want to work in this industry. Excellent course Duke university; Prof. Lincoln explains comprehensively and concisely, using daily-life examples, so everyone can catch the ideas expressed by him.

Muy buen curso. Explica de una manera muy sencilla lo mas importante de la industria del petróleo y del gas, desde la exploración hasta cómo y por qué fluctúan los precios de los hidrocarburos. Tomé el curso justo después de la caída de precios por la pandemia del coronavirus y toda la teoría del curso tuvo coherencia con la realidad de lo que estábamos viviendo. Lo recomiendo ampliamente.
