By creating a transparent, efficient marketplace based on electronic trading, we transformed energy markets and made them accessible across the globe. With more than 1,000 energy contracts, our products span crude and refined oil, natural gas, power, coal and emissions.
As the world's leading energy marketplace, we offer the global oil benchmarks - Brent, WTI and Platts Dubai - alongside hundreds of contracts across geographies. As home to the global benchmark Brent crude contract and Platts Dubai, ICE provides market depth and liquidity the oil industry relies on.
Our global natural gas complex spans important trading hubs from the US and Canada to Europe and Asia, underpinned by a global offering of more than 220 financially and physically-delivered contracts. We support liquidity and risk management across markets, from the benchmark Henry Hub contract to Canada's AECO, and the UK NBP and Dutch TTF futures contracts. In Asia, our Japan Korea Marker (JKM) Liquefied Natural Gas futures contract has become the leading natural gas benchmark in the region - a growing importer of LNG. In electric power, more trading takes place on ICE's platform than any other marketplace.
