LNG Trading – From Strategy to Practice

On-Demand Training Sessions from the Leaders in the LNG Space

Beginning 11 May 2022

LNG Trading From Strategy to Practice provides both essential knowledge on LNG via exclusive on-demand learning but also practice via live LNG trading simulations. Led by TwoTwoFive, the world leader in training courses for energy commodities traders, and Poten & Partners, the world’s leader in LNG advisory services, brokerage and business intelligence.

About the Course

Trading is also one of the most demanding areas of the LNG industry. It requires knowledge of suppliers, prices and markets, shipping, port and terminal constraints, traditional and unique hedging instruments, and various specialized contracts.

Successful LNG trading requires both breadth and detail, strong preparation but also decisions under tight deadlines for opportunities that may soon disappear.

LNG Trading From Strategy to Practice provides a conceptual framework to understand LNG trading and to participate effectively in developing an LNG trading business. Throughout the course we provide practical tips, tools and tactics to devise and execute sound LNG trading strategies while building an understanding of the commercial, operational and logistical aspects of LNG trading, how they interact, and how successful traders manage that interaction.

Throughout the course, attendees bridge between the course materials and their specific jobs and business requirements, with immediate payoff to their careers and sponsoring  organizations. The course give attendees direct, in-depth exposure to leading experts who have worked in a variety of roles across the extended LNG value chain and provides hands-on exposure and real-life experience through case studies, exercises, and TwoTwoFive’s unique computer-based LNG simulations.
