Share Article

This just-in-time course was created in response to growing interest in the ethanol (biofuels) market as it continues to make headlines worldwide. A United States federal mandate to provide a 10% gasoline-blend by 2011 is paving the path for ethanol to become a mainstay of the American energy equation. Major oil and gas companies are now embracing it and addressing the logistics and resources required to refine, blend, store, transport, and trade it vis-à-vis other refined products in their portfolios.

The Oxford Princeton Programme, the world's leading provider of education and training solutions to the energy, commodity and derivatives markets, is pleased to announce the forthcoming release of its latest web-based course:

Overview of the Ethanol Market

This just-in-time course was created in response to growing interest in the ethanol (biofuels) market as it continues to make headlines worldwide.

A United States federal mandate to provide a 10% gasoline-blend by 2011 is paving the path for ethanol to become a mainstay of the American energy equation. Major oil and gas companies are now embracing it and addressing the logistics and resources required to refine, blend, store, transport, and trade it vis-à-vis other refined products in their portfolios.

"The ongoing debate on where to cap ethanol blend, some arguing for as high as 15%, has heightened the stakes for this sector," says Jobert E. Abueva, Director, Global Marketing and North America Sales, The Oxford Princteton Programme. "By offering this timely training, participants can be assured of a solid foundational knowledge in key aspects of ethanol's value chain."

Furthermore, ethanol is already widely available at the pump in markets like Brazil with renewed worldwide focus as new technologies are identified.
