Oil & Gas Fundamentals for
Conflict Management Professionals

Course Dates

Two Days (14 Credit Hours)

In Alberta so much of our business, including conflict management, can involve the oil and gas industry. This two-day course is for those who are either currently involved or anticipate being involved with oil and gas related negotiations and conflicts and would like to have a better understanding of the industry's technical jargon and how things work in the oil and gas industry both corporately and in the field. The course will cover the fundamentals of the oil and gas industry from land acquisition to drilling, production and pipeline transportation, and identify some areas where there are opportunities for ADR practitioners.


David Hill is a seasoned oil and gas technical professional currently practicing as a conflict management specialist through his own company. He also has many years of experience in instructing technical concepts to non-technical participants. 

"Great presentations from the Surface Board and AER representatives. David's instructional time and material were well prepared and delivered. "
