India's leading stock exchange, National Stock Exchange (NSE), post receipt of approval from Securities & Exchange Board of India (SEBI), has launched the rupee denominated NYMEX WTI Crude Oil and Natural Gas futures contracts in its Commodity derivatives segment, on May 15, 2023.

Shri Sriram Krishnan, Chief Business Development Officer, NSE said: "It gives us immense pleasure to inform the market participants that NSE has launched the NYMEX WTI Crude Oil and Natural Gas futures contracts today. NSE has been the trusted exchange of market participants for close to three decades, due to its robust technology platform with high levels of safety and resilience for trading.  With NCL providing settlement guarantee and ease of collateral fungibility across all NSE market segments, we hope that these two contracts will provide market participants with an efficient avenue to hedge their price risk and meet their trading objectives.”
