Natural Gas Futures Market News and Commentary

Natural Gas Prices Are Slightly Lower With Mixed Weather Forecasts

May Nymex natural gas (NGK19) is consolidating above Monday's 1-month low and is trading slightly lower by -0.004 (-0.14%). May nat-gas continues to trade on a weak note 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 has since dropped back to 85.1 billion bcfd today. Nat-gas prices are being underpinned this morning by NOAA forecasts for cooler-than-average temperatures in central U.S. during March 31 to April 4, although warmer weather is expected in the western U.S. over that period and on the East coast. U.S. nat-gas prices are seeing some downward pressure as European gas prices today are trading 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. Last Thursday's weekly EIA report showed that nat-gas inventories fell -47 bcf, close to expectations of -48 bcf but a bit less than the 5-year weekly average of -56 bcf. For this Thursday's weekly EIA report, the 5-year average decline for the week is -41 bcf.
