Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Posts New 1-month Low on Warmer Weather and High Production

Apr Nymex natural gas (NGJ19) extended last week's sell-off to post a new 1-month low but then recovered to close the day slightly higher by +0.007 (+0.25%). Apr nat-gas continues to trade on a weak note due to warmer U.S. weather and an increase in U.S. nat gas production over the weekend to a new high for the year of 85.9 bcfd, although production on Monday dropped back to 85.3 billion bcfd. U.S. nat-gas prices are also seeing carry-over weakness from the steady decline in European nat-gas prices that has resulted from record LNG shipments from Russia and the U.S. NOAA on Monday raised its forecast for warmer weather in the next 8-14 days on the East coast. Nat gas prices were also undercut on Monday by the mildly lower trade in the dollar index. Nat-gas prices have support from continued tight supplies, which stood at a 4-3/4 year low of 1.143 tcf as of March 15, down -21.0% y/y and -32.7% below the 5-year average. Last Thursday's weekly EIA report showed that nat-gas inventories fell -47 bcf, close to expectations of -48 bcf but a bit less than the 5-year weekly average of -56 bcf. For this Thursday's weekly EIA report, the 5-year average decline for the week is -41 bcf.
