Course Fee: US$1,400

The course is designed for anyone requiring a thorough overview of the global markets and infrastructure for liquid petroleum gases.

Half-day Workshop: NGL Price Drivers Workshop

Wednesday, November 9, 2016
Time: 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Course Fee: US$700

With surplus Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) in the US and global trade flows changing, there is intense interest in the impacts of these trends on NGL prices in the US and around the world. While not intended to teach how to trade NGLs, this course will discuss what factors influence NGL prices in global markets and why there are regional price differences. We will show how NGL prices compare with other energy and petrochemical prices, and how the various NGL prices differ among each other. We will discuss the importance of supply, demand and inventories, including the effects of seasonality as well as the extent to which the byproduct nature of NGLs and the various NGL end uses influence pricing. Some other topics include competition, substitution, freight and arbitrage and market sentiment.

This course will benefit anyone who wants a better understanding of NGL price trends, such as business and financial analysts, traders, commercial managers, petrochemicals producers, LPG retailers and refiners.

Half-day Workshop: Global Ethane Markets & Exports Workshop

Wednesday, November 9, 2016
Time: 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Course Fee: US$700

A glut of US ethane has resulted in increased petrochemical demand, but has also raised interest in ethane’s use as a fuel and as a new commodity for large scale exports. This workshop will discuss how and where ethane is produced around the world, as well as its uses. We will cover ethane demand regionally as well as interregional product flows and overland/onshore infrastructure. While not intended to teach how to trade ethane, this course will discuss what factors influence ethane prices. We will show how ethane prices compare with other energy and petrochemical prices.

This course is designed for anyone needing to understand the basics of the rapidly changing markets for ethane. Course attendees would include business development managers, natural gas liquids traders and shippers, project managers for ethane or competing projects, business analysts, investors and entrepreneurs.

Half-day Workshop: Basics of Waterborne LPG Shipping

Wednesday, November 9, 2016
Time: 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Course Fee: US$700

US LPG exports are increasing, thus giving cause for additional LPG carriers, and changing the established trade routes. Meanwhile, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean output is also on the rise, causing a shift in the global trade balances. Market participants have an increasing need to understand the logistics and dynamics of the changes that are rapidly occurring. For example, will there be a sufficient number of vessels? Will there be too many? Will terminal capacity become a hindrance to global trade? How will freight costs be affected?

This course is designed for those with an interest in learning the basic principles and mechanics behind the overwater LPG shipping market. While the course is not intended to teach attendees how to trade LPG, it will cover overwater imports, exports and trade flows, including ship-tracking systems. Information critical to understand waterborne LPG shipping will be covered, including specification issues, industry-specific vernacular, industry participants and their respective roles and other components. The workshop will also cover basic LPG ship design, dimensions, characteristics and costs, freight factors, costs and drivers, as well as terminal development. As a bonus, the development of the overwater ethane trade will be covered, including the interface with the global LPG markets.
