  • Corporate Portfolio Management

    Contains 2 Component(s), 0.8 credits offered

    In this module, you will learn how energy opportunity diversification using portfolio management processes leads to a predictable commercial outcome.

    Description:

    Petroleum exploration opportunities, like investments in the stock market, face a wide range of risks with substantial impact on ultimate financial performance; however, with careful planning, analysis and selection, these projects can be grouped into portfolios, with relatively predictable outcomes. In this module you will learn how energy opportunity diversification using portfolio management processes leads to a predictable commercial outcome. Global exploration opportunities are studied in the context of reserve and income replacement. The learner will be able to: learn key business fundamentals of an enterprise including existing businesses and their historical performance, analyze and characterize the portfolio of existing and potential businesses and rank them in light of business performance fundamentals and the strategic objectives of the enterprise, and learn how to apply risk to your decision process and its effect on the portfolio.
