Webinar: Simulating and valuing LNG cargo deals


Lacima Trader webinar series, in association with Tullett Prebon 

Monday 14 January 2019, 2 - 3pm US Central Time

This webinar is the first in our LNG series which was originally presented in July.  As promised, due to popular demand, we are now pleased to re-run it for those who missed out.

Traders and structurers are often tasked with trying to quickly and accurately value LNG cargos but are challenged by simulating prices that reflect both historical price movements and current option prices.  Using the Lacima Trader Suite of Excel tools it is now possible do this quickly and easily.

Join us for this webinar, where Lacima will walk through a detailed example using the Lacima Trader suite of tools to simulate prices and value an LNG cargo deal.

We will explore:

  • How to simultaneously simulate: gas hub prices, oil prices, freight rates, fuel costs and FX rates
  • How to simulate the entire forward curve, including seasonality
  • How to compare simulated prices against historical prices
  • How to value an S-curve contract using simulated prices

Future webinars in this series will explore trading strategies and the valuation and optimisation of portfolios of committed and uncommitted cargos.
