Course description

Gas Market and Trading Programme

The two days cover a multitude of topics designed to provide a thorough knowledge of the European natural gas markets, highlighting the key relationships and interdependencies throughout the traded gas markets in Western Europe.

The first day is designed to look at the background and mechanics of traded markets answering the questions of: Why do we trade and what influences gas prices? Day two looks in detail and how to hedge and optimise portfolios with a detailed look at supply contracts, LNG and gas storage to give the participants the understanding of the tools that are used by traders to capture value and manage risks.

The course makes use of interactive trading simulation exercises to reinforce the points learned and to develop new skills that can be used back in the workplace.
