Physical Natural Gas Trading

This highly interactive and intensive two-day physical natural gas trading class will provide the attendees with a comprehensive understanding and knowledge base of how gas is traded physically amongst major participants. This unique program delves into the details of the physical markets, operations and logistics, and distinct difference between physical and financial markets.
