    Peter Reitz, Chief Executive Officer of EEX: “We’ve decided to launch the new maturities in response to the continued high trading volumes on our natural gas markets, as well as the growing customer demand.

Our new maturities for this sector will support customers at improving hedging options and drive long-term trust.”
