1.Refinery Crude Slate Strategies 2014
 Dates 29 Apr 2014 → 30 Apr 2014
[ID=605106] Go to top of page
 LocationHouston, Texas, United States
 Abstract This exponential growth of light shale crude, coupled with the burgeoning Canadian Heavy crude production arriving by rail, has led to a so called 'golden age of refining'. The advancement of discounted light crude, however, has come against a legacy of refineries configured for heavy oil production. For refineries to maximize netbacks and fully capitalize on these production shifts, current strategies must be adapted. Whether through investment in reconfiguration or adjusting to accommodate incoming crude grades through blending, refiners must adapt their strategies to take economic advantage of changing market differentials for crude types and refined products. With existing export regulation giving US refineries uncontested access to advantaged crude, there is to be a legacy reversal with American crude products making their way into the world market. Selection of crude grades is now determined not only by what advantaged crude is available, but by the product yields the grades can provide. In depth assessment of current and upcoming North American crude grades is necessary to determine the optimal supply strategy to maximize refinery netbacks. Furthermore, a developed analysis of international opportunities for the developing US product export market for numerous crude products must be considered when evaluating the business case for reconfiguration investment.

The Refinery Crude Slates Strategy Summit 2014 will address these issues and more. As the first North American summit examining downstream crude strategy in the wake of enormous production shifts, the forum will scrutinize the relative economics of crude blending against refinery retooling, developing supply sources and global market opportunities for refined product exports.

10.MEFERA — Mineral Economics, Finance Evaluation and Risk Assessment
 Dates 23 Jun 2014 → 26 Jun 2014
[ID=620678] Go to top of page
 LocationJohannesburg, South Africa
 Abstract The global mining industry is extremely capital intensive but subject to large swings in profitability due to the high volatility of prices and political risk. Managing mineral enterprises in this environment requires a comprehensive understanding of the economic concepts and analytical tools appropriate to the extractive industries for establishing asset values and guiding investment decision making. Unfortunately formal education in this mineral economics sector is lacking on a global scale and professionals often learn many of the important aspects on the job or by trial and error. Standard business analytical tools are often not understood and misapplied. The workshop is designed to address these issues by providing mining industry participants with a detailed overview of the practical application of mineral economics with particular focus on financial valuation of assets. This course provides an overview of the field of mineral economics and introduces key economic theories and methodologies as adapted to mineral commodity analysis.
 Topics mineral, economics, finance, evaluation, risk, assessment, mining, mine, exploration, geologist, natural, resource, legal, financial, analyst, accountant, auditor, investor, commodity, south, africa, johannesburg, sandton, gauteng, singapore, infocus, international, meeting, conference, seminar, workshop, events, power, oil, gas, energy, gold, diamond,
