Energy Sector Primer

Hi everyone,

I recently searched previous threads regarding a primer for oil & gas companies, but was not able to find anything other than a few posts from 2013, where members sent primers through PMs. I have done some preliminary reading and understand basic concepts (NAV for E&P is popular, PV 10 as the discount rate, etc...), but want to more thoroughly understand and eventually build models for some companies I am interested in.

Does anyone have a primer or reading recommendation for someone looking to learn how to model for oil & gas companies?

The only thing I've read is Deutsche Bank's Oil & Gas primer (is that what you are referring to?), but I only have a tangental interest in the sector.

You can google it, or download it here: http://prawo.uni.wroc.pl/pliki/8381

Trading Natural Gas is still the standard. I also like "Energy Trading and Investing" which is newer and has some stuff on NGLs and LNG.

Energy Trading and Investing is really good. Assumes very basic knowledge of the Energy markets and goes into quite a lot of detail.

Energy Trading and Investing by Davis Edwards serves as a good primer and covers jsut about all tradable assets/financial contracts utilized in the energy trading space. Oil 101 is a good one as well and focuses more solely on oil trading as the name suggests. Iris Mack has also published a good book on the subject, Energy Trading and Risk Management. You can read the reviews to see which one fits best with what you are looking for. These are all full lengths books so its quite a bit more depth than say an S&P Platts primer, but all are good reads to build a solid knowledge base in both physical and financial energy trading.
