Option Style
Options are average priced and will be automatically exercised into the Argus Eurobob Oxy FOB Rotterdam Barges vs Brent 1st Line Future (in bbls) on the expiry day if they are "in the money". The Future resulting from exercise immediately goes to cash settlement relieving market participants of the need to concern themselves with liquidation or exercise issues.

No manual exercise is permitted
Option Premium / Daily Margin
The Argus Eurobob Oxy FOB Rotterdam Barges vs Brent 1st Line Average Price Option (in bbls) is a premium-paid-upfront option. The traded premium will therefore be debited by the Clearing House from the Buyer and credited to the Seller on the morning of the Business Day following the day of trade. Members who are long premium-paid-upfront options will receive a Net Liquidating Value (NLV) credit to the value of the premium which is then used to offset the initial margin requirement flowing from both these options and positions in other energy contracts. Members who are short premium-paid-upfront options will receive an NLV debit in addition to their initial margin requirement. NLV is calculated daily with reference to the settlement price of the option
Expiry

When exercised against, the Clearing House, at its discretion, selects sellers against which to exercise on a pro rata basis. Non-Common Pricing applies.
