The National Stock Exchange (NSE) on Thursday said it will launch its crude oil futures contract on Friday, and has signed an agreement with ICIS, a leading global market information provider for the energy and petrochemical markets, to license its BFOE (Brent-Forties-Oseberg-Ekofisk) market data. The NSE has worked closely with ICIS to design a robust system that brings international best practice to help customers to access global crude markets. 

As part of the daily compilation of the index, the NSE is licensing ICIS BFOE assessment data, which is produced five times a day in accordance with established ICIS methodologies.
