  • Good look at MLPs specifically

  • Videos were very imformative
  • Enjoyed this lesson the best - about pipeline construction
  • I especially enjoyed the laying pipe section of this lesson
  • Pictures and videos made it much easier to follow and understand
  • Very well spoken
  • Good pictures of pigs
  • Interesting to think about risk - consequences v probablity
  • Was not aware of many of these operations
  • I would recommend this class for anyone in the oil and gas industry
  • The Pipeline Construction and Facility Construction lessons would be great mini classes on their own
  • Emphasizing one dollar now, vs one dollar in the future was a great way to explain the time value of money
  • Loved the videos
