The settlement was made at a US dollar concept of $895/tonne FOB (free on board) NWE (northwest Europe) and converted to the euro price at the agreed exchange rate of €1 to $1.334. Further confirmation from other market participants is pending.

While the number is a small increase in euro terms, the initial dollar figure represents a $40/tonne drop from November. In November, the agreed exchange rate was €1 to $1.416.
