LNG: Commercial Focus — Freight, Chartering & Contracts
Cambridge Academy of Transport is now able to offer two distinct 2-day LNG courses on an online basis. The first course covers Design, Technology & Markets whilst the second course, described below, explores the commercial aspects of LNG shipping and trading.
The two courses can be taken separately; but as they are scheduled on back-to-back weeks, individuals can opt to take both in succession, offering an immersive learning experience of this fast growing and technologically challenging industry.
Who Should Attend?
The course appeals across the entire LNG value chain: resource and asset holders, importers, traders, ship owners, charterers, terminal operators, financial institutions, auditors, equipment manufacturers and service providers. Past participants have commented positively on their learning experience delivered in a dynamic and professional manner in a welcoming environment that encourages knowledge exchange. Lecturers challenge participants' understanding, probe deeply into issues of the day and pose solutions to problems faced by many in their own business environment.
Past attendees include senior executives from across the globe, spanning a broad range of responsibilities: general management, trading, ship owning and chartering, voyage and deal operations, finance and project planning.
Benefits of the Course
The curriculum of the course will examine transport costs or freight economics, viewed through the prism of a shipper or vessel charterer versus that of the vessel owner/operator. With a further focus on LNG cargo sale and purchase agreements and associated LNG charter parties, the "Deal Architecture" will be revealed and with it a better understanding of the commercial integrity of a project.
