ECX, ICE Futures and Trayport announce increase of access to Emissions Contracts

Amsterdam / London - 4 October 2006

The European Climate Exchange (“ECX”), a subsidiary of Climate Exchange Plc, and ICE Futures today announced its integration with Trayport; enabling users to view, post, monitor and trade ECX CFI contracts via Trayport’s GlobalVision Trading Gateway platform. Trayport and ECX/ICE Futures have entered into an ISV partnership, to extend access to the CO2 emissions contracts, which will enable authorised traders to interact directly.

The ICE ECX CFI Futures Contract and shortly the ICE ECX CFI Options Contract will be available for the display of real time prices and trading via the Trayport system. This will enable a more comprehensive view of multiple commodity markets and faster, more efficient execution.

Peter Koster, Chief Executive of ECX, commented: “Because of clear signals from the market to trade ECX CFI contracts via Trayport, this cooperation couldn't be more timely. We are delighted to increase accessibility to our products and respond to participants’ wish for greater systems and trading flexibility.”

Elliott Piggott, Commercial Director at Trayport, added: “We are extremely pleased to provide the capability of an ECX/ICE Futures link to Trading Gateway Users. We have seen widespread interest from the market for this level of integrated access, and are delighted to add to the 49 markets that can already be accessed through Trading Gateway to create even more opportunities for trading in the energy community.”

Access to ICE Futures for the trading of ECX CFI Contracts can be secured by becoming an ICE Futures Member or by order-routing as a client of an ICE Futures Member.
