5 Mission Statement Mission Statement: to promote efficient and reliable transaction processing within the energy trading industry by means of automation and standardization.

6 Energy Trading - Initiatives
Promote data automation and standards Fill the gaps in automation and standardization which includes contracts Develop contract standards to allow for electronic confirmation and electronic settlement of trades Work with system vendors on a neutral basis to ensure they use the same data standards

7 Standard Contracts Release V2.0 of the LEAP Master Agreement for Crude Oil and Refined Products (U.S.) in Nov., 2007 International Swap and Derivatives Association (ISDA) is working with LEAP to publish an Oil Annex Canadian sub-committee will be releasing the Canadian Addendum to V2.0 of the LEAP Master Agreement in June, 2008

8 Benefits of Standard Contracts
Independent and neutral contract Industry standard reference point (95%) standard terms and conditions Able to customize (5%) if required Significantly reduces time required to negotiate contracts Reduces legal costs associated Allows electronic confirmation of energy trades and operational excellence

9 Benefits of Electronic Confirmation
Electronic matching of deals identifies trade capture error rates (10 – 20%*) Firm acceptance of deal terms under agreed terms and conditions Faster acceptance, facilitates audits Eliminates manual processes Reduces paper flow time and costs 4 companies using eConfirm in the U.S. for physical crude oil trades *Source: ISDA Benchmark Study 2007

12 How it works The Canadian Addendum appends to the LEAP Master Agreement if executed One set of Special Provisions allows companies to customize these terms The master contract terms then apply to applicable transactions with the parties Without eConfirm there are still benefits of shorter contracts that bind the parties under fully agreed terms Schedule J of ICE eConfirm allows parties to confirm electronically
