New Course on Risk Management within the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Industry

Over at the Learning Corporate Finance Blog, I posted a new free online course on risk management within the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical.

A short six session introduction to a risk management framework for the Oil, Gas and Petrochemical industry focused on managing crude oil price volatility for Oil refiners, Polymer and PVC manufacturers and Power Plant operators with partial fixed price tariffs and no government subsidies. While the course builds up from basic discussion on policy, data and models, it also introduces the concept of margin shortfall analysis as a tool for tracking, managing and hedging volatility in crude oil prices.
