Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Closes Little Changed as Weekly EIA Inventories Show Expected Decline

Apr Nymex natural gas (NGJ19) on Thursday closed up by +0.001 (+0.04%). Nat-gas prices closed little changed Thursday after weekly EIA nat-gas inventories fell -47 bcf, close to expectations of -48 bcf, although a bit less than the 5-year average for this time of year of -56 bcf. Increased U.S. nat-gas output was a bearish factor Thursday on data showing U.S. lower-48-state nat-gas production at 84.153 bcf, up +5.9% y/y. Also, NOAA has forecasted above-normal temperatures across most of the northern U.S. from March 26-30, which should curb heating demand for nat-gas. In addition, the April-May nat-gas futures spread remained negative today and has been negative since Jan 30. A negative spread suggests nat-gas supplies will be ample by the end of the heating season. Apr nat-gas rallied to a 1-1/2 month nearest-futures high Tuesday on forecasts for colder-than-normal weather this week on the U.S East coast, which may further deplete already tight U.S. nat-gas supplies supply. U.S. nat-gas inventories continue to shrink as nat-gas stockpiles on Mar 15 stood at a 4-3/4 year low of 1.143 tcf, down -21.0% y/y and -32.7% below the 5-year average.
