Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Nat-Gas Falls on Expectations of Warmer December Temps

Jan Nymex natural gas (NGF23) on Wednesday closed down -0.305 (-4.22%).

Jan nat-gas on Wednesday tumbled to a 1-week low and closed sharply lower on forecasts for milder U.S. weather that would limit heating demand for nat-gas.  The Commodity Weather Group said the risks are for warmer weather in the East and Central to West U.S. from Dec 10-14, and forecaster NatGasWeather said "temperatures could warm above normal over much of the U.S. from Dec 8-15 as subfreezing air retreats to Canada."

Lower-48 state dry gas production on Wednesday was 100.8 bcf (+5.1% y/y), modestly below the record high of 103.6 bcf posted on Oct 3, according to BNEF.  Lower-48 total gas demand Wednesday was 85.2 bcf/day, down -1.5% y/y, according to BNEF.  LNG net flow to U.S. LNG export terminals Wednesday was 12.8 bcf/day, up +13.2% w/w and the most since June 7, the day before the fire shut the Freeport LNG export termnal in Texas.
