Despite ongoing illiquidity and some growing downward pressure on the market, as buyers and traders looked for arbitrage opportunities into the US, the supplier said that at least one of the contracts had been settled at a rollover from February.

The contracts were settled on a free on board (FOB) northwest Europe (NWE) basis.
Further confirmation from other players is pending.
