Product to extend existing LNG offering
Leipzig, 29 January 2024 – The European Energy Exchange (EEX) expands its product offering on the EEX natural gas derivatives markets with new, financially settled EEX TTF Natural Gas Month Futures denominated in US$/MMBtu, from 15 April 2024.
Steffen Koehler, COO of EEX, comments: “In recent years, TTF in US$/MMBtu has become the pricing benchmark of choice for European LNG imports as well as being used outside of this region for LNG-related trading strategies. We therefore believe that our new extended offering will be ideal to meet the growing needs of this market, by enabling wider hedging opportunities for the LNG trading community.”
The new products will be available with up to 72 monthly expiries, complementing EEX’s existing offering for the LNG market, which currently comprises the EEX JKM LNG Natural Gas Futures.
LNG is a fast-growing global commodity, and in the first half of 2023 LNG imports to the UK and Europe exceeded pipeline delivery for the first time. In 2023, LNG made up 42% of the EU’s total gas imports.
