Course Highlights

This continuing education online PDH course is NY approved. This course is also accepted in the States of AK, AL, AR, DE, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WI, WV and WY.

This course presents in-depth technical discussions and case studies of numerous exploration and production technologies as well as their associated environmental and economic benefits. With advanced technologies, the oil and gas industry can pinpoint resources more accurately, extract them more efficiently and with less surface disturbance, minimize associated wastes, and, ultimately, restore sites to original or better condition.


As such, today’s industry is better equipped than ever to find and produce valuable oil and gas even as these resources have become more concentrated in deeper, more remote, and more technically challenging areas. Also, such advances support our nation’s goals for environmental protection.


This online PDH course is applicable to environmental, geotechnical and petroleum engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility operators who are interested in gaining a better understanding of advancements in exploration and production technologies.


In this course, you need to review the “Technology Fact Sheets” of the Department of Energy Report: “Environmental Benefits of Advanced Exploration and Production Technology” provided below. Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty five (35) questions to earn 7 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this DOE report.
