About this Training Course

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) has provided intercontinental mobility to natural gas, which now provides about 25% of the global primary energy. Being the cleanest fossil fuel, natural gas/LNG consumption is forecasted to grow in all future scenarios. With the entry of various players, including Trading companies, the LNG value chain is becoming increasingly complex, and a solid understanding of its economics and management of its interfaces have become crucial to identify and assess investment opportunities and risks.

Recent market disturbances caused by COVID-19, Oil & Gas price instabilities – coupled with the political (Ukraine/Russia) challenges – make a deep understanding of LNG Value Chain Logistics and Economics even more essential to ensure the security of energy supplies sustainably and profitably.

This intermediate level 3 full-day course starts with a concise introduction to the LNG business. Thereafter, the elements of the LNG value chain are described, and their individual economics analysed. A Business Activity Model along the value chain will be developed and discussed in depth, covering the following key processes:

“Buy Gas – Transport Gas – Liquefy Gas – Sell LNG/Products – Ship LNG – Regasify LNG”

The integrated chain economics will then be developed and quantified. A hands-on group workshop/exercise developing the economic case of a full-sized Liquefaction project will be carried out, considering the forecasted cash flows throughout the project life, the location of the plant, its markets, project sensitivities and profitability assessment.

Participants will be provided with Excel based tools/models (LNG Liquefaction project development Net Present Value (NPV) analyses, Shipping Freight Calculations and Economics) to work through the exercises and also for their future personal use.

After the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how the LNG Value Chain operates, bound by the relevant Contracts and Agreements.
  • Learn the basic economic parameters (operating, capital costs, financing, profitability) of each major element of the value chain.
  • Appreciate the complexity of the value chain, and the associated opportunities and risks.
  • Develop quantitative project evaluation skills.
  • Explore options to maximise profitability in a given LNG value chain.
  • Discuss best practices on how to manage, steer and govern these activities.

Technical, Operational, Shipping, Commercial, Project and Governance professionals who are already active in a specific section of the LNG Value Chain will directly benefit in developing a wider and deeper perspective on how the LNG Value Chain operations and can be optimised. Managers (Technical, Financial, Legal and Governance) less familiar with the specifics of the LNG Industry will also benefit from attending this VILT course, as they will obtain the required background to be able to set sharper targets, suitable performance indicators, and governance and performance assessment guidelines for units engaged in the chain. The course is most relevant for professionals engaged in the LNG industry at:

  • National and International Oil & Gas/Energy Companies
  • LNG Importers/Exporters/Traders/Shippers
  • Government & Regulatory Agencies
  • Finance Institutions

It will also apply to the following audience:

  • Business Development Managers
  • Corporate Planning Professionals
  • Project Developers
  • Supply Planners & Scheduling Professionals
  • Regulators
  • Tax & Finance Advisors
  • Compliance Officers
  • Equity Analyst and Bankers
  • Joint Venture Representatives, Board Directors
  • Negotiators and Contracting Staff
  • Trading Professionals
  • Intermediate

Your expert course leader is an Oil & Gas/LNG professional with more than 35 years of international experience, majority of which was gained at Shell International Joint Ventures engaged in Oil Refining, Supply / Trading, Gas Supply and LNG Businesses in the Netherlands, France, Thailand, Dominican Republic and Nigeria.

Since 2004, he has had several roles in the management of the LNG Value Chain including the Commercial Operational Management of Nigeria LNG (NLNG). He played an active role in the start-up and integration of LNG trains 4, 5 and 6 with NLNG becoming the 3rd largest LNG producer in the world in 2007. Commercial operations spanned 4 Gas Supply, 11 LNG Sales & Purchase Agreements, ad-hoc LPG and Condensate Sales and LNG Ship Chartering contracts. Under his supervision, more than 2,000 LNG cargoes were exported. He was part of the organizational transformation of the company from a Project-based set-up to a Production / Commercial based structure and implemented an “Integrated Planning and Scheduling Department”” in which he optimized the value chain (Buy-Gas – Liquify Gas to LNG – Sell – Ship LNG). Staff competence management was one of his focus areas during this period. He was also the NLNG representative on JV Technical, Commercial, Shipping Committees where he interfaced with Government & Regulatory authorities.

In 2014, he was appointed as Shell Shareholder representative to NLNG and became a Non-Executive Board member to NLNG companies, including Bonny Gas Transport (BGT) managing 24 LNG Ships. During this period, he was involved in the Economic and Technical steering of the Shipping Fleet and Liquefaction Plant Rejuvenation projects and a further capacity expansion of liquefaction plant which resulted in the achievement of NLNG train 7 project FID in 2019.

Since 2016, he has been active as an independent consultant. He co-authored 2 patents and more than 30 published papers/presentations. He holds a PhD from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and a MSc and BSc in Chemical Engineering from the University of Birmingham, UK.
