Commercial Strategies for Petrochemical Industry
The dynamics of the global petrochemical industry are changing rapidly and in profound ways. There is more volatility in the markets and many industry participants are adjusting towards JIT sales and purchase agreements. This course sets the participants in real life sales and purchase case studies whereby they will be confronted with cost, pricing, volatility, netback and logistics considerations, and they will be tasked to make decisions in this uncertain environment just like in real life. This is the only course of its kind in the industry that uses real life case studies to highlight key commercial concepts.

These courses are designed for both technical and nontechnical industry participants, new to the industry, as well as those who desire a refresher course. Attendees in marketing, sales, procurement, strategic planning, manufacturing, technical and supply chain would benefit.
