About the Course
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has provided intercontinental mobility to natural gas. The LNG sector is an industry that is constantly changing as it responds to growing demands in international energy markets, with the LNG value chain linking production fields to markets over vast distances to deliver cleaner-burning natural gas around the world.
LNG continues to increase its share of year-on-year growth in the global natural gas trade and remains one of the fastest growing sectors of the energy industry. Global demand for LNG is increasing and diversifying significantly, particularly in Asia and Europe. An increasing number of new producers, shippers and consumers are becoming directly involved in LNG trade. Many new world-scale projects are under development or expansion.
This Live Online Training (LOT) course provides a solid foundation to understand the natural gas and LNG businesses by covering relevant technical, commercial, financial and contractual aspects. This intensive course provides an understanding of the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) sector – from technical details, to market strategies through to commercial issues and future trends impacting the LNG supply chain.
The LOT is relevant for professionals drawn from both technical (project, shipping and production operational) and non-technical (commercial, finance, legal and governance) backgrounds. Participants with expertise in one area of the value chain will benefit from the LOT course by obtaining good grounding in all other relevant areas. Commercial and managerial staff looking for a concise overview; engineers new to the LNG industry; specialists looking to broaden their general knowledge of LNG and staff involved in LNG commerce and interested in LNG technical fundamentals will all benefit.
The course is designed for those looking to gain a better understanding of the fundamentals of the LNG industry – from the technical to the commercial to the strategic. The agenda will focus on LNG liquefaction technology, shipping, regasification facilities and LNG’s role in supplying clean energy globally.
The course provides a broad, but integrated, insight to the technologies, the markets, the economics and the risks of the industry with a balance between technical and commercial issues, that are explained in language suitable for a multi-disciplined audience. Extensive use is made of up-to-date data, quality diagrams and recent photographs.
The course is structured in a presentation-style format, with high levels of attendee interaction as delegates will be invited to ask questions and share their views. The course includes references and examples of the current LNG climate.
This LOT will use real-life examples to illustrate the main concepts and possibilities. Discussions to complement the lecture material (using numerous illustrations and photographs) are used to stimulate discussion and deeper analyses will be encouraged.
Who Will Benefit
This course is not a basic level introductory course. It has a specific techno-commercial focus for technical and business oriented professionals who are either new to the LNG industry or experienced in one part but could benefit from a wider perspective.
- Technical (exploration and production, geoscience and engineering)
- Non-technical (commercial, finance, government, marketing and legal) backgrounds
- Those who have recently joined an LNG market development team with expertise in one area of gas development
