The Oxford Princeton Programme Announces 2013 Global Energy Training Course Catalogue

More Than 300 Courses Give Energy Professionals Competitive Edge

PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY – 5 October 2012 – The Oxford Princeton Programme (, which provides professionals with world-class commercial education and training on the energy markets, announces its 2013 Global Course Catalogue. With the energy industry facing an extreme labor shortage, these courses can help businesses worldwide develop a competitive edge building the skills of its workforce whether it is in oil, gas, power, or other energy resources.

“With courses spanning the entire energy value chain, our 2013 course catalogue offers cutting-edge training on the energy industry’s most prevailing trends,” said Jobert Abueva, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing of The Oxford Princeton Programme. “We look forward to another amazing year of courses – bringing energy professionals from around the globe together to provide them with the knowledge necessary to flourish in their energy careers.”

Looking toward 2013, The Oxford Princeton Programme anticipates the following trends in the energy industry (based on information from EIA):

1. Short term decrease in demand for oil – despite projections of increased demand for oil from emerging economies in the long term (with the likelihood of increased prices), in the short term, there will be reduced demand from OECD countries thanks to technological innovations creating more supply than demand, spurred by years of high oil prices. 
2. Biofuels production increase – the EPA’s 2013 biodiesel increase mandate ensures that this sector will continue to see growth in the short term.
3. Labor shortage - with the threat of mass retirements in the next few years and not enough new employees available to replace them and meet future demand needs, companies need to plan ahead to maintain their workforce.

The 2013 courses will take place worldwide in London, Oxford, Calgary, Rome, Geneva, Dusseldorf, Stavanger, Singapore, Perth, Melbourne, Cape Town, Dubai, New York, Houston, Las Vegas, and Kuala Lumpur.
