The settlement price of the first nearby Brent Crude Oil (ICE) Futures contract month will be used except on the last day of trading for the expiring Brent Crude Oil (ICE) Futures contract when the settlement price of the second nearby contract month will be used.

The conversion factor will be 6.35 barrels per metric ton.
