ICE Clear Credit has cleared $2.2 trillion in single-name CDS resulting in open interest of $737 billion.

Note: As of October 15, 2012, ICE transitioned all of the open interest in OTC cleared energy swaps contracts to futures contracts. All futures volumes in the tables above have been adjusted to treat, on a pro forma basis, the OTC cleared energy swaps contracts as futures contracts for all periods prior to October 2012.

RPC is calculated by dividing transaction revenues by contract volume, and may vary based on pricing, customer and product mix.
