Total traded volumes at the NBP and TTF

During Gas Year 2015, the Dutch TTF overtook the British NBP to become the largest European gas market.

A total of 15,416TWh of gas was traded at the TTF across all market venues, while at the NBP some 8,655TWh of gas trade occurred.


OTC and exchange volumes: NGC, Gaspool, PSV

Across Europe, most gas trade is conducted over-the-counter (OTC), the section of the market priced by ICIS.

Almost all short-term NBP trade is based on the OTC market, which the Heren indices and assessments have been pricing since the hub was created 20 years ago.
