Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Prices Slump to a New 3-Year Low on Robust Production and Inventories

July Nymex natural gas (NGN19) on Wednesday closed down by -0.052 (-2.23%). Nat-gas prices gave up an early rally Wednesday and tumbled to a fresh 3-year nearest-futures low on concern about robust U.S. nat-gas production and larger-than-average builds in weekly nat-gas inventories. Wednesday's data showed that U.S. lower 48-state nat-gas production rose +8.4% y/y to 84.968 bcf. The outlook for above-average builds in U.S. nat-gas inventories continues to pressure nat-gas prices as Thursday's weekly EIA inventory report is expected to climb by +105 bcf, above the 5-year average of 84 bcf. That would be the twelfth week that inventories rose by more than the 5-year average. A lack of intense heat in the U.S. is also limiting nat-gas demand for air conditioning as Maxar Weather is forecasting below-normal temperatures in the central and eastern U.S. from June 29-July 3. Last Thursday's weekly EIA inventory report showed that U.S nat-gas supplies rose +102 bcf, above the 5-year average for this time of year of 92 bcf and the eleventh consecutive week that U.S. nat gas inventories rose by more than their 5-year average. Last Thursday's EIA data showed that U.S. nat-gas supplies stood at a 4-1/2 month high of 2.088 bcf as of June 7, up +9.1% y/y but -9.9% below the 5-year average.
