Course description

LNG Trading & Hedging (Including Simulated Trading)

This is a comprehensive three day course providing practical and hands-on trading experience in the global LNG market. It commences by providing a view of global LNG market developments. It looks at the current supply and demand situation around key production and consuming areas and the flows of international trade taking place. The session concludes with a look at the future possibilities for LNG trade. The focus then shifts to the practicalities of trading and managing price risk within the markets. The balance of Day One and Days two and three then look to bring the content to life as you play a series of LNG trading games using the simulator. This puts in to practice some of the delivered content, plus the further learning content interspersed through days 2 and 3. The course team are all ex-gas traders with a wealth of experience that they bring to both the theory and practice of this unique course experience.
