PETRAD Seminars

Petrad - International Programme for Petroleum Management and Administration is a Norwegian Government Foundation established by Norad - Norwegian International Agency for Development Cooperation and the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate in 1989 to coordinate and facilitate sharing of knowledge and experience within the Petroleum Sector. This is done through tailor- made courses, seminars and projects in cooperation with Government Institutions and National Oil Companies in developing and industrializing countries. Experts and lecturers for the various activities come mainly from the Norwegian Petroleum Authorities, Norwegian and International Petroleum Industry, Universities and R&D Institutions. However, a large number of international lecturers have also made their contributions.

Petrad has been conducting tailor-made courses and seminars together with CCOP Member Countries since 1985.  In addition, Petrad’s 8-week course on Petroleum Management is also offered to the CCOP Member Countries, and has been held every year in Stavenger, Norwaysince 1991. These scholarships have been made available through NORAD and the Norwegian Ministry of Oil and Energy.

Petrad also arranged EPF/94 - Exploration Promotion Forum in conjunction with the World Petroleum Congress in Stavanger, Norway, in June 1994. This was a great success. Petrad sponsored on this occasion 26 experts from 6 CCOP Members and CCOP TS. Petrad also assisted CCOP with the arrangement of another EPF in August 2002 in conjunction with ONS – Offshore Northern Seas Exhibition and Conference. The Official CCOP Delegation consisted of 25 persons. In addition there were another 25 representatives from CCOP Members who participated in the ONS-EPF.
