Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Nat-Gas Prices Fall Back Despite Hot US Weather

August Nymex natural gas (NGQ24) on Tuesday closed down -0.064 (-2.84%), giving back part of Monday's rally of +5.78%.

Aug nat-gas prices on Tuesday ran into some long liquidation pressure after Monday's rally.  However, nat-gas prices have continued support from hot US weather forecasts, which would boost nat-gas demand from electricity providers to run air conditioning.  NatGasWeather sees warm to hot weather for most of the US during July 30 to Aug 6.

Nat-gas prices have been undercut by the glut of US nat-gas supplies, with nat-gas inventories +16.9% above their 5-year seasonal average as of July 12.  Also, an outage at the Freeport liquified natural gas terminal has reduced US gas exports and boosted already bloated inventories.  The Freeport LNG terminal slowly began to restart after Hurricane Beryl damaged part of the plant.  The Freeport LNG plant is one of the largest in the US and can liquefy as much as 2% of US daily gas production.
