Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Prices Close Lower on Warmer Weather Forecasts

May Nymex natural gas (NGK19) on Tuesday fell back towards Monday's 1-month low and closed the day down -0.023 (-0.83%). May nat-gas fell on Tuesday due to due to warming U.S. weather and an increase in U.S. nat gas production over the weekend to a new 3-month high of 85.9 bcfd, although production then dropped back to 85.1 billion bcfd by Tuesday. Nat-gas prices on Tuesday were undercut after Radian Solutions forecasted a warming pattern in the Central and Eastern U.S. during April 5-9, although near-term, NOAA is forecasting cooler-than-average temperatures in central U.S. during March 31 to April 4. U.S. nat-gas prices on Tuesday saw continued downward pressure from European gas prices, which traded just slightly above Monday's 2-1/2 year low on ample LNG imports. Nat-gas prices have underlying support from continued tight supplies, which stood at a 4-3/4 year low of 1.143 tcf as of March 15, down -21.0% y/y and -32.7% below the 5-year average. The consensus is for this Thursday's weekly EIA report to show a -44 bcf drop in U.S. nat-gas inventories, a slightly larger drop than the 5-year average for the week of -41 bcf.
