IntercontinentalExchange Announces Daily Volume Record in Heating Oil



    IntercontinentalExchange Announces Daily Volume Record in Heating Oil

PR Newswire

LONDON, April 12, 2013

LONDON, April 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IntercontinentalExchange (NYSE: ICE), a
leading operator of global markets and clearing houses, today announced a
daily volume record of 35,733 contracts was reached in ICE Heating Oil futures
on April 11, 2013. The previous volume record was 26,850 contracts on March 6,
2013.

The ICE Heating Oil futures contract is based on New York Harbour ULSD Heating
Oil, now with a 15 parts per million (ppm) sulphur content, from and including
the May 2013 contract month. It is the North American equivalent of the
actively-traded ICE Gasoil futures contract. Priced in U.S. dollars and cents
per gallon, the contract trades for 36 consecutive months at a time. Each
contract is sized at 42,000 gallons, the equivalent of 1,000 barrels.

ICE Futures Europe announced the change to the underlying specification of the
Heating Oil futures and options contracts in June of last year. The move
follows a bill issued by the New York State Senate which limits the sulphur
content of heating oil to a maximum of 15 parts per million (ppm) from July
2012. The new specification aligns closely with the underlying quality of the
ICE Low Sulphur Gasoil futures contract, launched in 2011.
