  • 9:00 AM Full Day Workshop: Fundamentals of LPG Markets Part I

    This course is designed for anyone wanting a thorough overview of the global markets and infrastructure for liquid petroleum gases, with a focus on why the markets are structured as they are. We introduce the LPG products and explain their production from oil, gas and refining - including bioLPG. We also discuss the end use markets, including demand drivers and competition. We explain LPG logistics on land and over water, and discuss why LPG trading hubs develop. We explain the drivers of LPG prices, and the influence of specifications, international trade and arbitrage. We discuss the countries where the major end use markets thrive, and provide a global perspective on the regional distribution of LPG production and demand.

    Course attendees have diverse backgrounds, but typical participants include business development managers for midstream companies, natural gas liquids traders and shippers, high-level managers assuming commercial responsibility for natural gas liquids, project managers for NGL infrastructure projects, business analysts for petrochemical, petroleum and natural gas companies, and new professionals entering the NGL industry.

    Instructor: Walt Hart, Ph.D., Vice President, NGL Research & Consulting, IHS Markit and Fernando Covas, Director Downstream Consulting, IHS Markit

  • 9:00 AM Half Day Workshop: Basics of Waterborne LPG Shipping

    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?

    Instructors: Joanna Campos, Senior Analyst, Midstream Oil & NGL, IHS Markit

  • 9:00 AM Half Day Workshop: NGL Price Drivers

    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. 

    This workshop will be offered in Spanish.

    Instructor: Adrian Calcaneo, Director & Latin America & the Caribbean Lead - Midstream Oil & NGL, IHS Markit and Fernando Covas, Director Downstream Consulting, IHS Markit
