MIBGAS Derivatives and Pavilion Energy Spain will renew their agreement in which Pavilion Energy Spain provides a market maker service for LNG products traded on the TVB (virtual balancing tank).
This LNG market maker agreement will be offered for the next six months and is an affirmation of Pavilion Energy Spain’s commitment to the development of a liquid LNG market in Spain. By ensuring the continuous presence of LNG offers on the trading screen, progress is being made on the creation of a robust LNG market in south-western Europe, taking advantage of the strategic position of the Iberian market and capitalising on all the potential of its infrastructure: six regasification plants in Spain and the existence of a single virtual tank (TVB) for the trading of LNG.
MIBGAS was a pioneer in June 2019 with the launch of LNG spot trading at the six Spanish plants. This organised market place or exchange – the first one to be launched in the world – received a boost on 1 April when the LNG trading was concentrated in the TVB. In this way, the tanks from all the Spanish regasification plants were united as a single virtual tank, thus allowing market participants, from that date, to buy and sell LNG regardless of its physical location, which increases the number of counterparties. MIBGAS Derivatives thanks Pavilion Energy for its commitment to the development and creation of the LNG hub.
MIBGAS has a total of 146 registered agents, and its platform covers natural gas spot products including monthly (M+1), while MIBGAS Derivatives -a subsidiary of MIBGAS- trades natural gas physical futures, spot products in underground storage and LNG spot products. It also offers the service of registering bilateral OTC transactions. MIBGAS is also the Guarantee Manager of the Spanish gas system.
