      This summer, NYMEX and LCH.Clearnet are launching a broad range of global energy products for trading on the CME Globex platform. These product offerings are comprised of OTC and futures products for clearing through LCH.Clearnet through two new exchanges: NYMEX ECM and NYMEX MTF. Initially, these offerings will include the global benchmark oil contracts, including WTI, Brent and Gasoil, as well as key natural gas and electricity contracts. These products will be cleared by LCH.Clearnet using existing and widely distributed clearing technology, thus optimizing operational efficiencies for market participants.
      This historic alliance will deliver improved capital and operational efficiencies through wider execution capabilities, broader credit intermediation and margining benefits for customers and market participants.
      Additional information is available at http://www.nymexonlchclearnet.com/
      Important note: The NYMEX ECM contracts require development to support trading of these unique products. Detailed development information is available in the NYMEX ECM and NYMEX MTF Products on CME Globex Client Impact Assessment document. The complete list of new NYMEX ECM and NYMEX MTF products is available in the Snapshot.
