Overview: 

This figure shows the prices for base contracts (settled price on 27 December 2019) for each quarter for the next four calendar years as well as the volume of each base contract traded in the most recent quarter. High volumes for 2020 base contracts were a result of the conversion of base load options to base future contracts on 17 November 2019.
