The dwindling oil-gas margin has had a dramatic influence on the current status of the Gas to Liquids market. With major GTL projects being placed on hiatus or shut down all together. However, recent advancements in smaller-scale GTL solutions and its commercial viability are driving down the capital and operating cost of GTL. With regulatory and legislative forces favouring the GTL market we are sure to see an expansion in the industry.

 

With an impressive 17 years of experience in the Gas to Liquids field the SMi Group are proud to announce the deliverance of their 18th Annual GTL conference on the 12th to 13th October 2015, London. This event is sure to be one of the highlights of the industry calendar providing delegates with an all-encompassing, robust and insightful presentation on the latest developments within the Gas to Liquids industry and the effect of the oil-gas price margin on the state of the GTL market. This is a unique opportunity for attendees to gain a competitive edge as well as key insight into the strategies to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with projects. The conference will provide the perfect platform for networking with perspectives from all of the key influences of the Gas to Liquids ecosystem.

Many of the most cutting edge topics shall be addressed assessing how to sustain development in the field, small scale technological advancements, risk mitigation strategies, project updates and many more.

 

• Providing the chance to hear about the latest developments in Africa, The Middle East and North America.
• Presenting the latest developments in small scale technology and assessing it’s commercial viability.
• Comparative analysis of global regions, including emerging markets and where GTL is headed next.
• Assessment of the long term drivers behind feedstock prices and evaluating sustained GTL growth in a low oil price environment.
• Risk mitigation strategies and operating economically as well as managing volatile external threats.
• Hear from the resource holders perspective on long term market forecasts in the natural gas industry.

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

    CPD Certificates

    We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
