About this Training Course 

Port pricing and tariff charging is a complex subject where several topics related to port demand and investment, planning and capacity, competition and strategy, and policy and regulation are dealt with simultaneously. For oil and gas terminals, the methods and applications of port pricing may vary widely depending on the types and operations of terminal and storage facilities, the sources and types of port finance, the structure and components of terminal and tank costs, port competition and the elasticity of port demand, and economic and technical regulations of port activities and services.

This 3-day intensive course provides the participants with a comprehensive and expert-level knowledge in pricing methods and applications in oil and gas terminals. The course is aimed at a wider audience of port stakeholders; oil and gas operators, terminal and tank operators, traders and investors, port authorities and government agencies, bunker providers and agents, shipping lines and transport operators, shipping agents and freight forwarders, logistics and port users.
