About ICE Futures Europe
Established in 1981 as the International Petroleum Exchange of London (IPE), and acquired by ICE in 2001, ICE Futures Europe offers benchmark energy and emissions futures and options contracts.
ICE Futures Europe is the largest regulated energy futures exchange in Europe, and the second largest in the world. It hosts more than 50% of the world's crude and refined oil futures trading, and its benchmark contract - ICE Brent Crude - is relied upon to price two-thirds of the world's physical oil.
Since 2003 ICE Futures Europe has partnered with the Chicago Climate Exchange to host its electronic marketplaces and in 2005 the entire energy futures portfolio became fully electronic.
