The course has been designed to help delegates prepare for the future of LNG and equip them with the skills they need to understand the changes that are happening within the industry as it shifts from its existing structure. This course will look at the current drivers for LNG in the global markets and the skills needed to manage the opportunities of the future. Attendees will gain insight into the structure of the current global gas market and understand the current pricing mechanisms in key areas and the price drivers for these markets. The course will then proceed to look at LNG trading and portfolio management to be able to build strategies to maximise and secure the margins from LNG trade giving perspectives both from the sell side and a focus at the current buy side opportunities. Finally, a roundup of the future developments underway in the global LNG marketplace, including deregulation, floating regasification and small scale LNG and how these are likely to impact the current supply and demand situation.
