5c003d5e591091d484ea3c6e8f6051f1150 150 This one-day course is designed to introduce delegates to the functionality of the natural gas industry and those involved in its operation. Discussion includes physical natural gas beginning with exploration and concluding with the delivery to the burner-tip. This course uses an historical perspective to explain how the regulation shaped the current market place and will also introduce financial products used for hedging physical positions. Delegates will become familiar with industry nomenclature and operation of the physical natural gas market place.

Delegates interact through a trading simulation designed to show how trading has evolved and how different physical and price risks are managed with financial tools. Delegates will create and manage a natural gas position using fixed and floating price instruments.

Includes Web-based Pre-study Module
