    Brief: There is now a state of the art form for trading crude oil and refined products: THE LEAP MASTER AGREEMENT.  The course begins with a discussion oil trading and how to use the LEAP Master Agreement to better manage your company’s market and credit risks.   Next, there is a step by step review of the entire LEAP master agreement.  How does the LEAP Master Agreement compare to the ConocoPhillips GTCs, and to the ISDA® with an oil annex?  What special provisions need to be added, and which ones are already part of the LEAP?  The course also includes complete coverage of the “Lessons from Lehman” and the “safe harbor” in bankruptcy for trading contracts.

    Excellent.  Very good interaction with the speaker.  Paragraph by paragraph (comparison) to COP and GT&C was a great approach.


    Very useful workshop and I will recommend it.


    LEAP is a great tool and this class really breaks down the LEAP section by section.  I liked how we incorporated real-life scenarios.
