  • Half Day Workshop: Basics of Waterborne LPG Shipping
    Date: Tuesday, November 7, 2017
    Time: 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
    Fee: US $750

    US LPG exports are increasing, thus giving cause for additional LPG carriers, and changing the established trade routes. Meanwhile, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean output is also on the rise, causing a shift in the global trade balances. Market participants have an increasing need to understand the logistics and dynamics of the changes that are rapidly occurring. For example, Will there be a sufficient number of vessels? Will there be too many? Will terminal capacity become a hindrance to global trade? How will freight costs be affected?

    Who is it for?

    This course is designed for those with an interest in learning the basic principles and mechanics behind the overwater LPG shipping market. While the course is not intended to teach attendees how to trade LPG, it will cover overwater imports, exports and trade flows, including ship-tracking systems. Information critical to understand waterborne LPG shipping will be covered, including specification issues, industry-specific vernacular, industry participants and their respective roles and other components. The workshop will also cover basic LPG ship design, dimensions, characteristics and costs, freight factors, costs and drivers, as well as terminal development. As a bonus, the development of the overwater ethane trade will be covered, including the interface with the global LPG markets.

  • Half Day Workshop: NGL Price Drivers
    Date: Tuesday, November 7, 2017
    Time: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
    Fee: US $750

    With surplus Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) in the US and global trade flows changing, there is intense interest in the impacts of these trends on NGL prices in the US and around the world. While not intended to teach how to trade NGLs, this course will discuss what factors influence NGL prices in global markets and why there are regional price differences. We will show how NGL prices compare with other energy and petrochemical prices, and how the various NGL prices differ among each other. We will discuss the importance of supply, demand and inventories, including the effects of seasonality as well as the extent to which the byproduct nature of NGLs and the various NGL end uses influence pricing. Some other topics include competition, substitution, freight and arbitrage and market sentiment.

    Who is it for?

    This course will benefit anyone who wants a better understanding of NGL price trends, such as business and financial analysts, traders, commercial managers, petrochemicals producers, LPG retailers and refiners.

    Workshop is led by:
    Fundamentals - Walt Hart and Adrian Calcaneo
    Waterborne - Scott Gray and Will Holeman
    NGL Price Drivers - Debnil Chowdhury and Joanna Campos
    All workshops will be lead by an English and Spanish speaking instructor. Simultaneous translation will not be available.
