U.S. natural gas futures rise for 1st time in 4 sessions reports: U.S. natural gas futures were higher on Tuesday, rising for the first time in four sessions as traders monitored shifting weather forecasts to assess the outlook for earlyspring demand and supply levels. A strong spring storm with heavy showers and thunderstorms will track across the southern and east-central U.S. and then across the Northeast in the first half of the coming week.

Aliso Canyon Senate bill moves forward reports: A state Senate committee approved a bill Tuesday that would prevent the reopening of the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility in Porter Ranch until an investigation is completed into the cause of a four-month methane leak from the facility. The Senate Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee, however, amended the bill to authorize the governor to declare an emergency and temporarily allow gas injections at the facility to prevent interruptions in Southland energy supplies. The Aliso Canyon storage facility has been largely out of use since the four-month leak spewed about 109,000 metric tons of methane into the air and led to the temporary relocation of about 7,000 residents. The leak began in October 2015 and was capped in February 2016. EES Consulting was hired by the county to study the utility’s claims that consumers might experience blackouts if Aliso Canyon was out of service. For more visit or click
