(MENAFN - Emirates News Agency (WAM))

DUBAI, 11th January, 2017 (WAM) -- The Dubai Mercantile Exchange, DME, has announced a 20 percent increase year-on-year in physical delivery volumes during 2016, reinforcing its increasingly influential role in the global energy trading marketplace.

DME registered the highest physical delivery in the history of the exchange in 2016, shipping a total of 260,688,000 barrels during the year compared to 216,163,000 barrels in 2015. Average daily volume touched a new high in 2016 at 8,762 lots, an increase of 19 percent over the previous year, while monthly delivery volumes rose 20.5 percent to 21,724,000 barrels.

Physical delivery for the month of January pegged at 28,509,000 barrels and a record 29,887,000 barrels due for delivery in February; the highest ever monthly volume registered on the exchange.

Commenting on the announcement, Ahmad Sharaf, Chairman of DME, said, "Over the last five years, DME has taken a number of measures aimed at enhancing our trading platform and physical delivery infrastructure, and our steady growth in volumes is a direct reflection of our success in offering customers a state-of-the-art, highly secure trading environment along with fair and transparent pricing."

He added, "With the balance of oil demand shifting eastwards, DME has successfully leveraged its position as the most credible source of pricing for oil trade flows in the region to expand its volumes and capitalise on the rapidly growing crude oil trade between the Middle East and Asia."
