scaling technology to tap into a reviving market
Continuing volatility in the energy and wider commodity markets and heightened regulatory scrutiny have increased demand and interest in compression for commodity swaps. For financial institutions, the regulatory capital required to maintain these transactions is also a motivating factor. Regulatory capital charges can be significantly higher for energy derivatives than other OTC derivatives. As trading increases and capital remains scarce, dealers are eager to shed unnecessary inventory.

Compression covers both financially settled and physical contracts as well as forward starting and in-delivery trades.
The legal-entity fragmentation that is common in commodity trading inhibits the effectiveness of collateral and netting arrangements.
