FUTURES & SWAPS > MIDDLE DISTILLATES
Middle Distillates are hydrocarbons that include primarily Gas Oil and aviation Jet Fuel (or high-grade Kerosene). Gas Oil is increasingly used as an industrial fuel, displacing Fuel Oil because of environmental concerns. It is also used as a fuel for buses, lorries, and taxis. Jet Fuel is commonly used as an aviation fuel and also as a domestic fuel for heating purposes.
Trading Middle Distillates
Jet Fuel and Gas Oil swaps are traded on a monthly, quarterly and calendar year basis. Ginga’s customer base includes Japan, China, Korea, Singapore, Australia and Europe.
