ADNOC, ICE to launch Murban crude futures on Abu Dhabi exchange in H1 2020
Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and the Intercontinental Exchange plan to launch a futures contract for Abu Dhabi's flagship Murban crude in the first half of 2020, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said Friday.
"ICE is working with [ADNOC] to launch Murban futures," said one person who did not wish to be named as he was not authorized to speak to the media. "There were a few exchanges bidding for it, and ADNOC picked ICE."
The International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, has listed "IFAD" as a new market identifier code for ICE Futures Abu Dhabi in its latest release of new identifier codes in September.
The person confirmed the new market identifier code was for an exchange to be set up in Abu Dhabi for the listing of the Murban crude futures contract, which could be as early as February.
Specifications for the physically delivered futures contract had yet to be finalized, the person said.
An ICE spokesperson declined to comment. ADNOC did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
