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.

Course Methodology

The course is divided into two independent modules that together, will provide a complete overview of the natural gas industry, from basic knowledge through to complex pricing and contractual concepts.

The course will be taught via a video conferencing platform, covering a combination of theoretical and practical case studies. Learning will be supported by quizzes and videos, as well as an analysis of an LNG sales contract. Key concepts will be discussed and debated in a highly interactive basis with own experience and questions.
