The most liquid market for global crude & refined oil

Today, around half the world's oil futures are traded on ICE, as the leading marketplace for global crude and refined oil. These include derivatives on Brent - the world’s most commonly referenced crude price - Platts Dubai, West Texas Intermediate (WTI), Gasoil, Heating Oil, and hundreds of additional grades.

ICE Brent and Platts Dubai are the most widely used global benchmarks for physical crude, and our Dubai futures provide critical price discovery and risk management for the Middle East and Asian markets. Dubai's influence continues to grow, as a pricing reference for crude oil cargoes used across the Asia-Pacific and U.S. West coast. We continually innovate to reflect evolving demand and supply fundamentals, changes in drilling technology, and new discoveries.
