At the heart of the Canadian energy market, Calgary is home to broad spectrum of energy related companies. As a Calgary energy brokerage, One Exchange is active in the North American energy market alongside this dynamic list of companies. In order to understand what we do as an energy brokerage it is helpful to look at the history that has shaped our environment.
Before there were trading platforms, software, and other technologies that have now become standard in the industry, Canadian crude oil markets traded through the price posting system. The posting system was not real time with live intraday price updates. Instead, it was a daily price report of CAD/m3 posted by a number of large market participants who set the value for those wanting to transact that given day. Trading the grades of Canadian crude was cumbersome under this system. To enhance trading, market participants developed and adopted the price convention that is still used today which is a differential versus the WTI CMA (West Texas Intermediate Calendar Monthly Average). This differential pricing system provided the market with a more reflective price over the postage system which settled at the end of each month.
Under the differential pricing system, there are a number of factors to consider that drive the price of various grades of Canadian oil and Condensate; WTI, USD/CAD, Pipeline capacity, refining margins, production levels to name a few. Keeping up with all the micro and macro economic factors can be very challenging.
With market variables changing by the minute, One Exchange helps by providing a full range of transaction services to producers, hedgers, refiners or speculators to help navigate efficiently through the market ranging from execution to real-time index calculations and end of day settlements.
