DME Oman to price Kuwaiti crude oil from February 2020
Dubai Mercantile Exchange (DME), the premier international energy futures exchange in the Middle East, has announced that Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) will use the DME Oman Futures contract as a price reference for Kuwaiti crude oil exports to Asia from February 1, 2020 onwards.
The decision by KPC reinforces DME Omans benchmark status in the Middle East.
DME Oman is widely regarded as the most efficient and transparent price discovery and risk management tool for the regional sour crude oil market. Oman Blend crude oil is highly representative of the quality of the majority of Middle Eastern crudes and as such is an ideal price marker for the regions oil exports.
Raid al Salami, DME Managing Director, said: The combination of Omans historical role as a trusted benchmark with best-in-class technology, market regulation and physical delivery makes DME Oman a very compelling benchmark for national oil companies that want transparent price discovery for their crude oil exports.
We welcome KPC and are delighted by their decision to switch part of their formula to DME Oman. We highly value the trust and the confidence granted to us by KPC and we are committed to providing the region with reliable risk management and price benchmarks, Al Salami added.
DME Oman crude oil futures contract is an official benchmark for five producers in the Middle East, all of whom use the exchanges marker price in their crude oil export contracts with Asian customers. The five producers are Oman, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and now Kuwait.
