This comprehensive oil trading 3-Day course on PHYSICAL & PAPER will guide all delegates through the fundamental principles of oil trading, with practical aspects conducted in a predominantly workshop environment, working in small groups on frequent case studies to develop an understanding of trading practices and risk. You will learn how to follow a deal from beginning to end, from negotiation to writing a contract, calculate shipping and other costs, fixing a ship, determining the risks and how to manage them. In addition, wherever possible real oil market prices and live market conditions will be used in the case studies.
Oil prices continue to be volatile, making an understanding of the mechanisms of market pricing and of trading and price risk management essential for everyone involved in the commercial areas of the oil industry. The past few years have seen volatility across all crude oil and refined products markets. All those involved in the industry, or who need to purchase or sell oil, need to be aware of how these markets work, how to adapt to changing market conditions and how to deal with price uncertainty.
