Oil and Natural Gas Marketing Breakfast Series (Part 1 of 2): When Every Dime Counts – Optimizing Yo

Crude oil prices have fallen from US$105/bbl in June, 2014 to US$40-$50 in late 2016, wreaking havoc in the Canadian oil industry. Producers have been forced to cut costs across the board in order to survive and many are being encouraged by lenders to hedge future oil prices as a condition of renewing their credit facilities. What many producers do not understand is that different price risk management trades, such as the popular “costless collar”, can often still cost $0.50+/bbl if a trade optimization strategy and system is not utilized. In an environment where every dime counts, what can a producer do to ensure its price risk management program does not leave money on the table?
