The objective for this course is to attach a financial perspective to each step of the industry, from wellhead to pump. Each step is examined by defining the primary components that impact economics and then quantifying the costs or revenues that flow from those activities. Economics are kept as current as possible with most values and examples reassessed just days prior to every course. The latest futures ticks, government statistics, SEC 10-Q’s, tariffs and margins are incorporated right up to printing deadline. This emphasis on near real-time economics drives robust discussion of the domestic physical market, global supply and demand factors, and geopolitical influences.
