Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Prices Retreat on Stronger U.S. Output

Mar Nymex natural gas (NGH19) on Wednesday closed down by -0.0268 (-0.98%). Nat-gas prices on Wednesday fell back from a 1-week high and closed lower on increased U.S. nat-gas production after Wednesday's data showed that U.S. lower-48 state nat-gas production rose to 84.876 bcf, up +9.9% y/y. Mar nat-gas early Wednesday posted a 1-week high on NOAA forecasts for colder-than-normal temperature across the western and midwestern U.S. during Feb 25-Mar 1, which should increase heating demand for nat-gas. Also, Radiant Solutions is forecasting below-normal temperatures from California to the Great Lakes from March 1 through March 5 with a forecasted low in Chicago of 11 degrees Fahrenheit (-12 degrees Celsius) on Mar 2, 15 degrees below normal. Nat-gas prices last Friday slipped to a 1-year low on signs of adequate supplies after weekly EIA nat-gas inventories last Thursday fell by only -78 bcf, much less than the 5-year average of a decline of -160 bcf. Another bearish factor is that the March-April nat-gas futures spread remained negative by -2.9 cents on Wednesday. A negative spread suggests nat-gas supplies will be ample by the end of the heating season. U.S. nat-gas stockpiles as of Feb 8 stood at an 8-month low of 1.882 tcf, down -0.1% y/y and -15.0% below the 5-year average. Thursday's weekly EIA nat-gas inventory report is expected to show a -169 bcf decline in the week of Feb 15, a larger decline than the 5-year average decline of -148 bcf for this time of year.
