- How the Price of Oil Affects Petrochemicals, Manufacturing and the Consumer

LONDON, April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- ICIS, the world's largest information provider for the global chemical industry, rolls out training courses in Singapore, Dubai and Cologne this year for beginners in petrochemicals.

The oil price surge has hit petrochemicals hard and increased costs are being pushed down the chain into manufacturing and consumer goods. ICIS training courses explain the fundamental relationship between oil, petrochemicals and our daily lives through the everyday products we purchase and consume.

"ICIS training courses bring clarity and focus to often difficult concepts and ideas," commented Christopher Flook, ICIS training Publisher. "Our training seminars are designed for newcomers to the industry, analysts and service providers, as well as product specialists who want to refresh their knowledge of the big picture. Delegates will learn about how oil and petrochemicals impact one another as they are increasingly used in consumer production," he said.

The 'Introduction to Petrochemicals' courses are designed and delivered by ICIS editors and reporters to provide new starters with the tools to understand the basics from both business and technical standpoints.

Tapping into the expertise of our global news, pricing and publications teams, ICIS training provides highly focused learning through petrochemicals training courses scheduled to run in 2005 in Singapore (20 April), Dubai (19 September) and Cologne (14 November).
