"Although we offer over fifty web-based training course titles as industry overviews on various energy markets as well as midstream and downstream topics, this is our first upstream title. Our new hydrocarbon course explains exploration and production in a clear and concise manner and offers perspectives on the future prospects for oil, gas and coal," said Clara Lippert Glenn, President and CEO of The Oxford Princeton Programme. "Working with our faculty roster of experts actively engaged in the industry, we have developed this course to enhance one's understanding of hydrocarbons – their origins, location and production."
Specifically, the self-paced online Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production course (available at www.princetonlive.com), examines:
- how oil, natural gas and coal were formed
- the geological structures where hydrocarbons are found
- the different methods of exploring for hydrocarbons
- how hydrocarbons are produced, including drilling techniques
- different types of hydrocarbons produced
- the main trends in the production of oil, natural gas and coal

These self-study courses offer optional narration, interactive quizzes, a final exam, and a certificate of completion. Courses are CPE (North America) and CPD (United Kingdom) accredited.
In order to address the need for professional development in energy commodity trading, Clara Lippert Glenn created the Princeton Energy Programme in 1992 and Princetonlive.com in 1999. She then engineered the merger with The College of Petroleum and Energy Studies in 2000 to form The Oxford Princeton Programme, which has helped thousands of blue-chip companies' energy professionals worldwide develop a competitive edge within the dynamic energy marketplace.
