This course is an advanced course for energy practitioners interested in enhancing their applied knowledge of best practices in valuation, hedging and risk management of long term contracts and physical assets. This highly interactive workshop uses practical case studies, Excel exercises and group discussions to reinforce the concepts presented in the lectures.
The course introduces the models and strategies used to value, hedge and manage the risk of derivatives and physical assets in leading energy trading organizations. Delegates learn about the practical applications of the models and strategies from the point of view of the users of those models, not the quantitative developers.
The course explores the embedded optionality and trading strategies to optimize storage, transportation (ground and marine) assets and long term contracts in gas, power and oil markets. Cross commodity spread strategies are explored in the context of power generation and oil refinery operations. The course also covers the valuation, hedging and optimization of natural gas, LNG and refined product storage strategies in contango and backwardated markets.
Delegates learn how to apply Monte Carlo simulation (stochastic forward curve models, Least-Squares Monte Carlo) and binomial/trinomial trees for physical asset valuation and hedging. Case studies show how to incorporate operational constraints in the analysis.
Recommended prerequisites: DPH1, DPH2, DPH3 (optional), PRM and NAGP
Please note: a laptop and Excel version 2007 or later is required in order to engage in market data.
