Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Prices Fall Back From a 1-1/2 week high on Increased U.S. Output

Mar Nymex natural gas (NGH19) this morning is down by -0.006 (-0.22%). Nat-gas prices fell back from a new 1-1/2 week high posted in overnight trade as signs of stronger U.S. nat-gas output spurred long liquidation in nat-gas futures. Today's data showed that U.S. lower-48 state nat-gas production was 84.369 bcf, up +8.7% y/y. Mar nat-gas posted the early 1-1/2 week high on signs of tighter supplies after Thursday's data showed weekly EIA nat-gas inventories fell by -177 bcf in the week of Feb 15, a larger decline than expectations of -169 and larger than the 5-year average decline of -148 bcf for this time of year. U.S. nat-gas stockpiles as of Feb 15 stood at an 8-3/4 month low of 1.705 tcf, down -3.1% y/y and -17.5% below the 5-year average. Also supporting nat-gas prices are the expectations for colder weather in the U.S. NOAA has forecasted colder-than-normal temperature across the western and midwestern U.S. from Feb 26-Mar 2, 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. On the negative side, the March-April nat-gas futures spread remained negative by -2.3 cents today. A negative spread suggests nat-gas supplies will be ample by the end of the heating season.
