Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Nat-Gas Prices Soar on Hot US Temps and Expectations for a Smaller Inventory Build

June Nymex natural gas (NGM24) on Wednesday closed up +0.171 (+6.40%).

June nat-gas prices Wednesday rallied to a new 4-month nearest-futures high and closed sharply higher.  Nat-gas prices surged Wednesday on forecasts for hot temperatures later this week in Texas, the US Midwest, and the Northeast, which will boost nat-gas demand from electricity providers to power increased air-conditioning usage.  

Nat-gas also has support on expectations for a below-average build in weekly nat-gas supplies that will shrink current excess inventories.  The consensus is for Thursday's weekly EIA nat-gas inventories to climb +85 bcf, below the five-year average for this time of year of +92 bcf.  

Lower-48 state dry gas production Wednesday was 98.7 bcf/day (-3.3% y/y), according to BNEF.  Lower-48 state gas demand Wednesday was 67.3 bcf/day (+5.5% y/y), according to BNEF.  LNG net flows to US LNG export terminals Wednesday were 13.0 bcf/day (+4.7% w/w), according to BNEF.
