Course Module Detail:
|Energy Markets and Security
A range of important issues regarding oil and gas market trends and prices, supply disruption and response, and market regulation will be explored. Particular attention will be given to natural gas as a fuel which contributes to the security and flexibility of national and international energy systems. The course has a very strong practical experience approach, and includes a simulation exercise of an oil supply disruption and a site visit to oil and gas facilities.
This course is suitable for professionals with a background in oil and gas markets and energy security policy, and some work experience in this area. The training will benefit both relevant government officials and experts from the private sector.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an autonomous organisation which works to ensure reliable, affordable and clean energy for its 28 member countries and beyond.
Founded in response to the 1973/4 oil crisis, the IEA’s initial role was to help countries co-ordinate a collective response to major disruptions in oil supply through the release of emergency oil stocks to the markets.
While this continues to be a key aspect of its work, the IEA has evolved and expanded. It is at the heart of global dialogue on energy, providing authoritative and unbiased research, statistics, analysis and recommendations.
Today, the IEA’s four main areas of focus are:
- Energy security: Promoting diversity, efficiency and flexibility within all energy sectors
- Economic development: Ensuring the stable supply of energy to IEA member countries and promoting free markets to foster economic growth and eliminate energy poverty
- Environmental awareness: Enhancing international knowledge of options for tackling climate change
- Engagement worldwide: Working closely with non-member countries, especially major producers and consumers, to find solutions to shared energy and environmental concerns.
