Description

Natural Gas Market Fundamentals was offered at the Canadian Energy Research Institute (CERI) but has been redesigned and updated. Now the focus has been narrowed to a general overview of North American gas markets and associated commercial practices, including a specific look at the main natural gas marketing functions. Government policy and regulation affecting gas marketing are covered to show how pricing and access to pipelines affects marketability. This course moves beyond theory to practice – giving participants the tools they need to function and succeed in the marketplace.

This course is ideal for newly-hired employees that require the guidance of someone that knows the ins-and-outs of gas markets and policy developments. It is also useful for experienced employees that are moving from other areas to natural gas. Customized versions of the course are available to address in-house course and training needs within a specific organization.

A continental breakfast and catered lunch will be provided for both course days.
