Gain a Comprehensive Overview & Understanding of the Full Natural Gas Value Chain from Exploration to Commercialization & the Latest Global Trends

This unique combination gives participants the flexibility to enhance their individual understanding of the entire natural gas and LNG value chain by having advance access to pre-recorded video modules and, during the scheduled course times, live online presentations and interactive discussions.

The modules will progress from the Fundamentals through to the more complex Business of Natural Gas/LNG facets of the industry.

Participants will gain the necessary knowledge to understand important and emerging concepts, including unconventional gas, cost of supply, oil price linkages, LNG ‘S’ curve pricing, alternative gas price indices, spot trade, hub and reference pricing, floating production & regasification, and integrated gas to power concepts.

This knowledge will be presented in a practical manner to ensure its relevance to contemporary industry requirements.
