Market makers boost Belgian ZTP gas liquidity to record level

Belgium’s secondary natural gas hub – the ZTP – saw its largest over-the-counter traded volume on record in April, with liquidity boosted by the introduction of four new market makers at the start of the month.

Just over 5TWh of OTC trade was seen in April, compared to just 868MWh in April 2016, according to trade data seen by ICIS.

ICIS looks at which contracts at the ZTP have seen particularly sharp jumps in traded volume, and how liquidity at the hub has changed since its inception in 2012 as an alternative to the sterling-denominated Zeebrugge Beach.
