A unique approach to better understand past, present and future energy transitions integrating Geo-Resources knowledge
Course Type Classroom Courses
Duration 3 hours
Thematic Energy transition
Why should you attend?
This course/conference aims to identify the drivers of past and present energy transitions. It is especially designed to give attendees a global overview and a systematic review of the role of ressources in the changes in energy sources. A specific focus will be made on oil and gas resources.
Review past energy transitions and identify key drivers.
Focus on resource identification and uncertainties using the oil and gas industry as an example
Understand the “energy mix” concept
Discuss potential future energy alternatives and their resource limits.
This interactive course/conference requires active participation of attendees with several Q &A sessions.
The process includes the construction of a timeline of energy transitions.
No specific requirement for this course as it can take place in any meeting room with validated HSE characteristics, on your company premises, or elsewhere.
Half a day (3 hours) is the ideal time. The class can be shortened or lengthened according to the request and/or adapted to the local context (country).
General introduction on chosen approach and context
Past energy transitions analysis and identification of key drivers.
Focus on hydrocarbon resources (status, vision, potential)
Other major energy resources of the 19th and 20th centuries
Key drivers for change
Energy Mix concept
Resource limits “Yes! So what?”
Imagine next transitions! Resources Issues!
This course/conference is primarily dedicated to students in geosciences but also more generally to any undergraduate or postgraduate students in sciences wishing to better understand the role of Geo-Resources in energy transitions.
It has also been designed for young professionals working in the energy sector who wish to gain an overview of the exact role of resources in transitions. This is not a course on economic/political and/or societal aspects of energy transitions.
Jean-Claude Heidmann has 40 years of experience in the geosciences and energy sector. He holds a Master of Science degree in Earth Sciences from the University of Paris XI and a Master of Exploration from the IFP School. He has spent his whole career in the energy sector working for the Total Group in France and abroad.
He has held various positions including Manager of Business Development for Technology and R&D and Global Vice President at Total's New Ventures Identification. Major achievements have been the TOTAL Award for Audacity, an outstanding track record of major discoveries, and the publication in the 2017 edition of the "AAPG Giant Fields of 2000-2010" for his Incahuasi discovery.
He also acquired academic experience both at IFP School as Director of Geo-Resources and Energy and then as Total Education Director in charge of corporate academic partnerships.
