Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Prices Rebound on a Smaller-Than-Expected Build in EIA Inventories

June Nymex natural gas (NGM19) on Thursday closed up by +0.035 (+1.38%). Jun nat-gas prices moved higher Thursday after a smaller-than-expected build in weekly U.S. nat-gas supplies sparked a relief rally. The EIA reported on Thursday that U.S. nat-gas inventories rose by 100 bcf in the week of May 17, below expectations of 104 bcf although still above the 5-year average for the week of +88 bcf. Nat-gas prices are also seeing support from expectations that above-average temperatures will boost nat-gas demand for air conditioning. Forecaster Maxar said temperatures will be well above normal across the East Coast and South through May 29 with record heat in the Southeast the second half of this period that will persist through June 3. AccuWeather forecasts a high for Atlanta on May 28 of 97 degrees Fahrenheit, 14 degrees above normal. On the bearish side, nat-gas prices are being undercut by strong production with today's data showing U.S. 48-state nat-gas production up by +7.7% y/y to 84.969 bcf. Another negative factor for nat-gas prices was last Monday's action by China to raise tariffs on U.S. LNG exports to 25% from 10% as of June 1, which may further curb Chinese demand for U.S. nat-gas. Chinese demand for U.S. nat-gas was already hurt by the original 10% tariff on U.S. nat-gas exports as seen by the fact that China has imported only four cargoes of American gas so far in 2019, compared with 19 cargoes over the same period a year ago. Nat-gas supplies stood at a 3-1/4 month high of 1.753 bcf as of May 17, up +7.6% y/y but -13.5% below the 5-year average.
