Gas storage and swing contracts

Training course: Amsterdam – 12 & 13 Dec 2016

  • Get insight into gas storage & swing contract valuation approaches
  • Learn about delta hedging, and practical hedge implementations
  • Analyse different trading strategies with a practical backtest
  • Combine theory with practice through case studies
KYOS organizes a practical training course about flexibility instruments in the natural gas market, focusing on gas storage, swing and take-or-pay contracts. The purpose of the course is to provide a better understanding of the value drivers, risk factors, portfolio management, trading and hedging strategies. Particular attention will go to intrinsic versus extrinsic valuation, applying concepts such as rolling intrinsic, real options, and least-squares Monte Carlo.

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.

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.
