Economic Feasibility Analysis of Upstream Petroleum Projects Workshop
Senior Petroleum Engineers, Geoscientist, and Finance Staff & Managers


May 23 - 27, 2021

Instructor : Dr. Ismael Mahgoub


Senior level of Petroleum Engineers, Geoscientist, and Finance Staff.
Newly appointed managers.


Establish economic feasibility study for petroleum development plans in effective multi-disciplinary team approach.

Workshop Objective

Preparation of economic feasibility studies of petroleum reservoir development plans for management approval is a challenging responsibility. This is achieved in this workshop by learning how to :-
  1. Establish effective multi-disciplinary teams of senior staff to developing petroleum reserves, particularly in the nature of the volatile petroleum market.
  2. Secure the decision analysis through carrying out sensitivity study since the upstream petroleum system is subject to considerable risk & uncertainty environment.

This multi-disciplinary team approach would promote the technical & finance efforts for securing managerial approval.

The workshop is designed primarily for those professionals whose responsibility during the carrier will include any of these essential aspects of the above sited components.

  • To develop an understanding of the HC field life cycle.
  • To promote an international reservoir engineering techniques and best practice relating to the development of HC field, reserve estimate, production forecast, etc……..
  • To gain insight & knowledge of economic evaluation process to establish cash flow model of a development plan to evaluate its profitability.
  • Provide knowledge of how to carry out sensitivity analysis of the generated cash flow model.
  • Integrate the generated cash flow model into the business FiscalRegim of the Corporate.


The workshop is focusing on in-classes excel sheet application to promote the participants practical skills. Accordingly the time allocation is divided into :

  • 50 % for lectures
  • 50 % for practical sessions

  • The participants will be distributed into multi-disciplinary, roundtable teams.
  • Every participant is to bring with him his Lap-Top to effectively carry out the practical sessions.


First day will be held at Holiday Inn (Former Sofitel Hotel), in Cairo. The participants will fly the next day to Hurghada. The course will be continued in Hurghada.


Inclusive of refreshment and lunch at the Holiday Inn (Former Sofitel Hotel). Air Ticket Cairo/Hurghada return and accommodation in Hurghada.
