AMSTERDAM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intercontinental Exchange (NYSE: ICE), a leading operator of global
exchanges and clearing houses and provider of data and listings
services, today announced the results of the ICE Endex gas storage
auction held on January 30, 2019, on behalf of GasTerra.

On January 30, a total of 6,614,728 Standard Bundled Units (SBUs) for
the contract period 2019/2020 were offered to the market and after five
auction rounds, 6,614,728 SBUs were allocated. The outcome of the

ICE Endex has successfully operated auctions for virtual gas storage
services in the Netherlands since 2011, with auctions taking place twice
a year.

Gas storage services are sold in the form of “standard bundled units”
(SBUs), which allow market participants to inject or withdraw gas from a
virtual storage facility. An SBU has a capacity of 1,440 kWh and
participants may withdraw between 0.6 and 1.0 kWh per hour and inject up
to 0.3333 kWh per hour. The total annual gas storage space is almost 20
billion kWh of natural gas or 13,229,456 million SBUs. The natural gas
from this virtual storage is delivered at the Title Transfer Facility
(TTF), which is the most liquid European natural gas trading hub
alongside NBP.

As a leading energy exchange in continental Europe, ICE Endex provides
transparent and widely accessible continental European markets for
trading natural gas and power derivatives, gas balancing markets and gas
storage services.
