Front-month trade lifts TTF gas volumes as NBP slumps

A seven-month high in traded volume on the TTF contract for delivery in September helped to lift total trade at the Dutch hub in August.

TTF trade during August was up 22% year-on-year, and was 42% higher than at the British NBP hub. This is part of a wider trend which has seen the Dutch hub overtake its British rival to become the most liquid gas hub in Europe.

ICIS takes a look at the why trade at the TTF was so strong in August, analysing which contracts traded particularly strongly, and whether traders gravitated towards OTC brokered trade or exchange platforms.
