MIBGAS Derivatives and ENMACC are set to offer their clients registration, clearing and settlement of bilateral transactions (OTC) services throughout the natural gas futures curve with delivery at the Spanish Virtual Balance Point.
This partnership, which allows enmacc members to expand their trading options and thus improve liquidity, has now been complemented by new functionalities for the benefit of agents. Members of enmacc will now be able to trade bilateral (OTC) transactions and leave the trade on their platform, which, once completed, will be registered by enmacc with MIBGAS Derivatives for clearing via OMIClear. There is no need for enmacc members to open credit lines or sign framework contracts from individual counterparties, and the transaction can be cleared with the option to remain anonymous throughout the trading process.
When registered through the MIBGAS Derivatives platform, these products will be considered to be physically delivered products, not financial products and therefore outside the scope of the MiFID II regulations. Contracts will also be cleared and settled through OMIClear, MIBGAS Derivatives' central clearinghouse.
ENMACC thus joins the list of brokers with which MIBGAS Derivatives has signed agreements for the registration of OTC products. MIBGAS Derivatives is committed to strengthening its range of gas futures products and services, facilitating the development of the natural gas futures market in the Iberian Peninsula and strengthening its leadership within this market in Spain and Portugal.
