Understanding Global Oil Markets provides an intensive, in-depth look at market fundamentals and pricing. It starts by focusing on PIRA’s perspective on supply/demand fundamentals and refining trends. The program then demonstrates how PIRA incorporates that information to develop its own forecasts of near- and long-term crude and product prices and margins. In addition to covering fundamental drivers of price, the course also includes an extensive discussion of the role of speculators, the impact of geopolitical issues and other risk factors, and the development of long-term price scenarios.
PIRA University was established in 2003 in response to the numerous requests from clients for PIRA to provide individual and company-specific training on a wide range of topics related to energy markets. PIRA University offers several different programs focusing on global oil, natural gas, coal and environmental markets. These programs — held in major energy hubs around the world and open to PIRA and non-PIRA clients alike — are designed for beginner- to intermediate -level analysts, marketers, traders, and planners, as well as senior managers and executives who wish to receive a refresher course on energy market concepts and practices.
Understanding Global Oil Markets is a two-day seminar open to both existing PIRA retainer clients and non-clients.

At the other extreme, those already possessing knowledge of much of the subject material can gain valuable insights into the impact of new and emerging factors on energy markets. The following professionals can all benefit from PIRA University:
