what happened to CL in Sept 06 ?

I was looking at a multi year daily chart of CL and noticed that volume seemed to go from barely existent to full-on in a spike that lasted less than a month. This happened around Sept 2006 and I'm wondering if anyone knows what exactly happened around that time that made this contract so liquid all of a sudden ?

This should have been around the time when the NYMEX joined with the CME to offer Globex trading in Crude Oil which would explain the spike up in volume.

Privare Banker is correct.

Initial trading of NYMEX energy products on CME Globex, currently scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2006, is expected to include side- by-side trading of NYMEX standard-sized and NYMEX miNY™ energy futures contracts for crude oil, natural gas, heating oil and gasoline with NYMEX's floor-based products during open outcry trading hours and when the NYMEX trading floor is closed. In the third quarter, all products trading on NYMEX ACCESS®, the exchange's after hours electronic trading platform, are expected to transition to CME Globex. Also under the terms of the agreement, CME Globex will be the exclusive electronic trading platform for metals products currently listed on the COMEX Division, with an anticipated third quarter launch.

Sep 06 is also when Amaranth blew up. But they were mainly in NG.
