Course description

International Trading Operations Practice is a three-day instructor-led energy trading course presented by the energy training experts at Mennta Energy Solutions. This course provides the detailed practices and techniques involved in trading operations in today’s international crude and product markets. It has been designed for front, middle and back office personnel who need a detailed insight into trading operations best practice and emphasises the factors which have impact on corporate profitability and risk. It will also appeal to personnel who have recently joined a trading group of an oil company, investment bank or commodity trading company. Much of the work will be carried out in syndicate groups where teams will simulate real in-company practice, working with other delegates drawn from a wide background of disciplines in the industry.

The course commences with the progress of a trade, and the formation of a contract and moves on to the elements flowing from this that require operations management, including chartering, nomination, documentation and claims. Each area is discussed in detail and topics such the relevant quality and specifications of actively traded product groups, the logistics of managing pipeline and storage deals and appointment of inspectors are also covered.
