How do on-demand payment bonds work?

ODPs work for obligations under standard ISO operating agreements and collateral obligations related to ISO auctions. An ISO member can build a bonding facility with Euler Hermes to support its bidding strategies and utilize the bond as a principal when they are required to post collateral.

Euler Hermes supports two type of ISO on-demand payment bonds; ISO Standard Operating Agreement and ISO/Assurance Auctions (subject to acceptance by each ISO).

ODPs work for payment obligations under industry standard commodity supply contracts for spot or term transactions (crude, natural gas, power, refined products),as well as for custom negotiated commodity transactions. The counterparties can agree to use a bond and the principal can post a bond to the obligee when they are required to post collateral and/or are short credit.

ODPs work for all obligations under standard short- or long-term pipeline construction/precedent agreements, pipeline transportation agreements, and commodity processing agreements. The shipper or producer utilizes the bond as a principal when they are required to post collateral.

Euler Hermes supports three kinds of pipeline and processing payment bonds; Pipeline Precedent Agreements, Pipeline Transportation Agreements, and Commodity Processing Agreements.
