ENERDATA LAUNCHES

CONSOLIDATED CANADIAN CRUDE INDEX

WITH MAREX SPECTRON & ONE EXCHANGE

 

Calgary, 6 September 2017Enerdata, the independent energy information firm, today announced the launch of the Canadian Crude Index Alliance (CCIA), a Canadian crude benchmark that aggregates the existing index data of Marex Spectron and One Exchange, two leading energy brokers.

 

CCIA is a major development for the Canadian crude market, in which there are currently a variety of indices compiled by different energy brokers. The consolidation of Marex Spectron’s and One Exchange’s Canadian crude indices through Enerdata, which has pioneered many natural gas indices, is an important step to providing the market with a real-time industry benchmark.

 

The new indices and the underlying data will be available to clients starting in September free of charge through their broker.

 

“Clients have told us that they want a single suite of public indices provided by a third party at zero cost,” said Ian Lowitt, Marex Spectron’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are delighted to have executed this first step with One Exchange and Enerdata, and invite other brokers to join the index. CCIA goes a long way to establishing an industry benchmark for Canadian crude that has greater liquidity and more accurate pricing.”

 

Perry Undseth, President of One Exchange, commented: “We are equally excited to be working with Marex Spectron to provide a solution to the fragmented market environment and believe that CCIA will provide customers with better trading and hedging opportunities by increasing liquidity and attracting new market participants in both physical and financial products. Tying financial instruments to a broader, more comprehensive benchmark offers a significant improvement over the existing market mechanics.”

 

Richard Zarzeczny, President of Canadian Enerdata, added: “We welcome the opportunity to be part of the CCIA. A consolidated oil price index is in the best interests of the Canadian oil industry as a whole and Enerdata reaches out to all Canadian crude oil brokers to participate.”
