Online Natural Gas & LNG Course

Innovative 6-module course takes participants from the basic technical details of natural gas, including gas units and chemistry, through difference between conventional and unconventional gas (Coal Bed Methane and shale gas), LNG value chain, gas pipelines, and concludes with detailed discussions about gas & LNG pricing, business models, and global trade patterns.

The online course uses ~150 slides and over 5 hours of verbal narrative delivered in video modules by the instructor, Dr. Vivek Chandra. 

Materials for the course are based on Vivek Chandra's successful 3 day Natural Gas / LNG Dynamics  course held over 28 times in 5 continents, and broadly derived from his bestselling book  Fundamentals of Natural Gas: An International Perspective, published by Pennwell, the publishers of Oil and Gas Journal. The course has been completely updated in 2019.

The course materials are very relevant to the current LNG market dynamics - and all registered participants will have an opportunity to have a skype conversation with the author to discuss particular topics of interest at no additional cost.  

You will be learning the industry from a recognized expert who is - at this time - developing an entrepreneurial LNG export project that will take Final Investment Decision in late 2019.

Dr. Vivek Chandra has over 30 years of international professional experience across the entire gas spectrum.


The course will answer these and more questions about LNG and gas that you always wanted to ask..

    • What are the components of natural gas? why are gas units so complicated? what are oil-equivalents?
    • What is the difference between Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)? Gas to Liquids (GTL) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG)? Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and LNG? 
    • Why are NGLs so valuable?
    • Why do we use both energy and volume gas units?
    • How is unconventional gas different from conventional gas?
    • How will unconventional gas impact global markets? can US experience be repeated globally?
    • What is the LNG chain? how has it changed over the past few years?
    • How will emerging technologies such as Floating LNG (FLNG), mini-LNG, and Floating Storage Regas Units (FSRU) change the business?
    • How do we price gas? How do we price LNG? why are they priced differently? What is a 'S' curve? how is LNG from the US priced? what are breakeven prices for US versus traditional LNG suppliers?
    • What do sales agreements cover? What terms in a Gas Sales Agreement (GSA) are most negotiated?
    • Why are gas prices in some regions changing in some regions, such as Europe, to hub pricing?
    • What is driving LNG demand? why is everyone looking at Chinese markets?
    • Where will future gas supply come from? how do regions with declining production supply their demand?
    • Will US LNG projects be competitive with LNG from other regions? Where will new projects be sanctioned?
    • What are the success factors for LNG projects?
