An important concept in the training course on gas storage and swing contracts is the dynamic hedging of the exposures, based on either (rolling) intrinsic or delta hedging. The course provides a thorough understanding of the calibration of statistical market parameters (volatility, correlations, mean-reversion, cointegration) as well as backtesting.
The course is useful, run by nice guys, in a great location – what more can you ask for?Read more › Ben Evans
In the course we will study how gas storage and swing contracts fit into a company’s gas portfolio. You will learn how to value the instruments, and how to optimally manage them in a portfolio, and develop trading and hedging strategies around them. The course concepts can be applied to a range of different storage assets, including time-varying costs, time-varying injections and withdrawals, volume-dependent injections and withdrawals, optional rates, etc. They can also be applied to all sorts of flexible gas contracts, featuring for example gas spot and forward indexation, indexation to other commodities, penalty structures, period quantity constraints, make-up and carry-forward rights.
