FUEL MANAGEMENT MASTER CLASS

Mastering the essentials of global markets for oil, gas, coal, renewable and strategize your fuel   purchase management

23 – 26 June 2014, Singapore

Official event website: http://neo-edge.com/event-line-up/commodities-supply-chain/fuel-management-master-class/

Overview

For full agenda, please email us your detailed contact information to rueburn@neo-edge.com . Please indicate subject “Fuel Management Master Class”. 

Some 60% to 80% of ongoing costs for electric generators and somewhat lower percentages for energy intensive industries are made up of fuel. For electric utilities and IPPs fuel purchasing also tends to be the greatest source of troubled relations with vendors and suppliers. It is also an area where in many instances management improvements with little or no capital cost can result in significant cost savings.

Fuel purchasing is a function where it is critical that all levels of management understand the fundamentals of the market. Unfortunately it is also a subject upon which there is a great deal of mythology in the business press with discussions of subjects such as the imminent advent of “peak oil” or “peak gas.” All too often judgment on fuel purchasing is made in response to such media discussion.

The goal of the workshop is to provide an understanding of how global markets for oil, gas and coal work. This involves an examination of market fundamentals: reserves, the cost of production, and demand. Also included is a discussion of how environmental concerns play an increasing role in inter-fuel competition.

The workshop includes an examination of the rise and importance of paper markets in oil, coal and natural gas, first in North America and Europe, and now developing gradually in Asia, Africa and Australia. There is a critical analysis of how price data is gathered for oil and coal and then published and the role which derivative markets play in spot market pricing.

The various factors which play a role in the development of a purchasing strategy will be reviewed. Ultimately the various factors boil down to trade-offs between supply security and price. Utilities with access to nuclear hydro power may have greater freedom to buy more spot coal or oil in times of soft market conditions. In other instances, the existence or absence of local resource may play a major role in shaping decisions about fuel selection and combustion technology. Increasingly government policies driven by environmental concerns are playing a role in fuel selection and efficiency of fuel use.

Fuel contract design and language is a major part of the workshop. We shall examine alternative wording for contract fundamentals dealing with volume and quality. Pricing provisions will be an important part of the discussion. Indexation to published prices, long common in the oil markets is becoming increasingly common for coal in Asia. For almost a decade it has been the norm in the European coal market. Although pricing is increasingly determined by reference to published indices, it continues to be important for the buyer and seller to agree to the details of the force majeure, dispose resolution and termination provisions. As well, in order to avoid the risk of disputes and misunderstandings, contracts should carefully define provisions for custody transfer, quality testing and weighing.

The focus of this Master Class will be on fossil fuels purchasing: coal of various sorts, natural gas (pipeline and LNG) fuel oils and if there is participant interest, biomass purchasing can be included. The geographic focus will be South and East Asia, Africa and South America. Experience from North America and Europe will be drawn upon if it is particularly relevant to these other markets. Principals and techniques covered will be applicable to utilities, IPPs, large industrial fuel users such as cement and chemical plants. The Workshop will span a broad range of issues from the primary factors driving global fossil fuel markets and national energy security to the details of drafting effective fuel purchase contracts. Contracted provision language will be drawn from a library of over 300 international fuel contracts. The rising impact on fuel markets of renewables and environmental concerns.

In this master class we will be discussing the market movement of both conventional fuels (Oil, coal, gas/LNG) and renewable resources which are used for power generations. We will explore many purchase strategies and analyse tradeoff between supply security and pricing. Various hedging techniques will be discussed together with the drivers of price volatility. Contracts provisions will also be an area of focus in this master class in order to cope with volume and quality shortfalls.

Global Market Basics:

 We will focus on the fundamentals of supply and demand: the size and location of the reserve base, production costs and the interaction between demand and price. While short-term price changes are often the reaction to geopolitical or financial events it is possible to pick out clues to form an understanding of the longer term direction of fossil fuel prices. An assessment of decades of prices enable a much better understanding how price changes in oil, natural gas and coal impact on one another. Environmental concerns increasingly play a role in fuel selection and inter-fuel competition.

Choice of Purchasing Strategy:

For IPPs the choice of purchasing strategy (mixture of short-term and long-term contracts) is often a product of the security concerns of the banks and the economic needs of the project developers. For utilities the trade off is between price and the need for security of supply (which may vary with season and type of fuel). Other considerations, such as availability of hard currency or a desire to foster regional economic development may also play a role. Industrial fuel purchasing is subject to the price and flexibility needs of the ultimate product produced, e.g., cement, chemicals, pulp, and paper. Many buyers of all types are increasingly using derivative markets to dampen price volatility and to provide greater price predictability.

Prices and Hedging

Trend in recent years for all fuels has been to short term pricing (quarterly or monthly) even in long-term contracts. Energy indexes are attracting increasing interest from regulators in the US, Europe and Asia. This is accompanied by the rise of paper markets for all fuels. There is a great importance of paper markets in Europe and the US and gradual development of derivatives trading in oil and coal in Australia, Singapore, China, etc. In the midst of this new financial legislation in the US (Dodd-Frank) and proposed in Europe will alter derivatives trading globally.

Major Contractual Provisions

Experience shows that things go unexpectedly wrong in many medium and long-term fuel purchasing arrangements. The goal is to build a contract structure which is not only fair to both the buyer and the supplier but also robust enough to withstand the numerous problems which will arise during the course of a long-term business relationship. Even spot purchase contracts are about much more than price. Real world outcomes indicate that things frequently can go wrong: mines flood or have strikes; trains derail; and coal loaders break down; natural gas fields have unanticipated production problems. Contracts should cope with all of the volume and quality shortfalls in the product that can be anticipated. There should also be clearly defined dispute resolution mechanisms which allow for timely settlement of contentious issues.

Negotiating Successful Gas & LNG Contracts Master Class (GasNego 2013)

Banner - Gas Negotiation Negotiating Successful Gas & LNG Contracts Master Class
JM Apart Hotel
Warsaw, Poland
28th to 31st October 2013

An advanced course for the Oil & Gas Industry on the detail of the contractual arrangements and risk management in gas and LNG sales

Official event website: http://neo-edge.com/event-line-up/energy-utilities/negotiating-successful-gas-lng-contracts-master-class/

Effective training in today’s global gas and LNG market has become an essential need for relevant executives in both the public and private sectors. The worldwide market in Pipeline Gas and LNG has grown rapidly as result of demand and deregulation, bringing tremendous business opportunities and challenges for all stakeholders including government entities, producers, sellers, transporters and buyers etc. High contract value, complicated commercial terms, volatile prices, cultural differences and many other unpredicted risks have made contract negotiating, dispute resolution and risk management more and more challenging.

In response to such industry dynamics, this advanced course provides practical and detailed training, in workshop format, and provides effective guidance in the critical considerations and conditions for successfully concluding Gas and LNG Sales Agreements. The course will enable participants to gain an insight into the way in which Buyers and Sellers view and negotiate Gas and LNG Sales Agreements, and will give participants a detailed understanding of the terms that are important in these transactions.

The course goes on to examine the inherent risks in a Gas or LNG Project, and how these risks are addressed within the Gas and LNG Sales Agreement. Risk assessment is a complex issue, and this course examines it from a commercial perspective, looking at the project structure and identifying how the commercial terms deal with risk in a satisfactory manner.

Based upon a composite of recent contracts, a case study approach highlights all the issues addressed in such contracts, and examines the various alternative means of handling them. It encourages a participative workshop approach and is highlighted by a detailed examination of 1) the terms of recently concluded gas and LNG Sales contracts; and 2) the Risk Matrix of an entire project showing the balance and interaction between its various elements.

Shutdown, Turnaround and Outage Management for Petroleum, Gas, and Chemical Industries

Banner - STO KL 2013

Shutdown, Turnaround and Outage Management for Petroleum, Gas, and Chemical Industries

-Cost effective planning and step-by-step execution

The Royale Chulan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

24-27 September2013

Official Website: http://neo-edge.com/event-line-up/energy-utilities/shutdown-turnaround-and-outage-management-for-petroleum-gas-and-chemical-industries/

Planned STOs are required for plants or distribution facilities to carry out their scheduled preventative, regulatory or engineering work. The purpose of STOs is to maintain the equipment reliability, improve safety and ensure efficient operation while also assuring critical regulatory requirements are achieved. A STO activity is a very important function that has a direct impact on profitability of a plant’s production and maintenance costs which result from the expenditure of manpower, equipment and materials. Proper work preparation and scheduling can result in a significant “ROI”. The ROI is a direct result of savings associated with manpower costs, minimization of STO and efficient controls. Quality STO management can minimize the possibility of accidents, rework, equipment failure, and reduce the impact on manpower safety, equipment and operation safety. A focus on excellent STO planning and execution is therefore crucial for the safety, throughput and cost effectiveness of all asset intensive organisations.

From this workshop, you will be exposed to detail steps and strategic techniques necessary to improve your STO management with effective completion in Oil, Gas and Chemical industries. You will also have the opportunity to participate in table top exercises, scenario discussions and networking amongst other industrial experts.

For full agenda, please email us your detail contact information to rueburn@neo-edge.com. Please indicate subject title “STO Management“.

Topics covered include:

  •  Introduction of Shutdowns, Turnarounds and Outages (STO)
