Course description

Brent Market Fundamentals is an online training course that provides an overview of the Brent crude oil trading market.  It covers the physical crudes that underpin the market, the instruments that are traded, and how the market is assessed by the price reporting agencies.

You’ll learn about how Brent is used as a global pricing benchmark, and how ‘Brent’ is really four North Sea crude oils – Brent, Forties, Ekofisk and Oseberg. We’ll review how the forward market works and how it can mature to become physical cargoes, known as the dated market.

We’ll also cover Brent swaps, including CFDs and DFLs. We’ll review how the leading price reporting agencies assess the price of Brent, and, finally, this course will provide an overview of how the Brent market has evolved.
