EMI's Physical Natural Gas Trading
During this intensive, 2-day course, we'll delve into the details of the physical markets, operations and logistics, and the distinct differences and applications between the physical and financial markets.
We'll present approaches that work for physical trading as well as valuing and optimizing natural gas positions and assets, with the take away of hard skills that you can use directly in the natural gas market.
This course is worth 12 CPE credits and 6 EMI credits.
During this course, we’ll be covering the biggest topics impacting the physical natural gas market today, including:
- The reversal of pipeline flows due to the shale supply. Several pipelines are in the process of turning their physical flow direction in the opposite direction. Shale production is not only changing the valuation of the commodity but the actual physical dynamics of the infrastructure, skewing the traditional relationship of the supply demand model.
- Shale production and it’s implications on the underlying value (NYMEX futures), the effect on the basis markets, and the effects on the midstream infrastructure.
- The current development of gas-fired power generation and the displacement of coal.
- The changing supply/demand equation that is currently underway in the gas market, largely due to power generation needs.
DTN’s unique program delves into the details of the physical markets, operations and logistics, and distinct difference between physical and financial markets. We’ll focus on making money for traders and saving money for buyers. Course attendees will be exposed to arbitrage (spread) trading as well as outright (long/short) trading opportunities.
