United States : Ice Endex Announces Results of European Gas Storage Auction for Gasterra.

Intercontinental Exchange, a leading operator of global exchanges and clearing houses and provider of data and listings services, announced the results of the ICE Endex gas storage auction held on November 28 2018 on behalf of GasTerra.

On November 28, a total of 6,614,728 Standard Bundled Units (SBUs) for the contract period 2019/2020 were offered to the market and after two auction rounds, 6,614,728 SBUs were allocated. The outcome of the auction is an average weighted price per SBU of 2.03 EUR.

ICE Endex has successfully operated auctions for virtual gas storage services in the Netherlands since 2011, with auctions taking place twice a year.

Gas storage services are sold in the form of standard bundled units (SBUs), which allow market participants to inject or withdraw gas from a virtual storage facility. An SBU has a capacity of 1,440 kWh and participants may withdraw between 0.6 and 1.0 kWh per hour and inject up to 0.3333 kWh per hour. The total annual gas storage space is almost 20 billion kWh of natural gas or 13,229,456 million SBUs. The natural gas from this virtual storage is delivered at the Title Transfer Facility (TTF), which is the benchmark Dutch natural gas trading hub.

As a leading energy exchange in continental Europe, ICE Endex provides transparent and widely accessible continental European markets for trading natural gas and power derivatives, gas balancing markets and gas storage services.
