Energy Modeling Foundations
This introductory course takes a quantitative approach to better understand the extractive energy industries, particularly oil and gas. Learn to construct a basic financial model of conventional energy projects using Microsoft Excel. The course will focus on key topics in energy finance, including valuation methods, energy derivatives, financial statement analysis, capital budgeting, and risk analysis. Also, analyze case studies addressing current energy topics and apply energy modeling using a “real-world” approach.
