In the course we will study how flexibility instruments fit into a company's portfolio to manage demand variations. You will learn how to value the instruments, how to use them in a portfolio of products and assets, and develop trading and hedging strategies around them. The course explains various contract structures, including oil indexation, penalty structures, period quantity constraints, make-up and carry-forward rights.
Who should attend?
The course aims to attract a wide range of people active in the natural gas value chain, including energy traders, asset developers, portfolio and risk managers, energy market analysts, regulators and consultants. The course does not require any specific pre-knowledge. The instructors are used to present technical details in an intuitive manner, both appealing to quantitative and non-quantitative people.
Case study and Trading game
The course is highly practical: throughout the course several case studies will be worked out with specialized analysis models for storage and swing (Take-or-Pay) contracts. The models will be provided for the duration of the course plus a month thereafter. Apart from case studies, the course also features an energy trading game. The goal is to optimize a portfolio of energy customers, while trading in the market and optimizing the storage and swing products.
