Canadian Natural Gas Prices Enter Negative Territory amid Pipeline Outages

Financial Post reports: Pipeline outages and maintenance work have caused volatile swings in Alberta natural gas prices, even pushing them into negative territory recent days. In the past few weeks, Alberta’s benchmark AECO prices have fallen into negative territory – meaning producers have had to pay customers to take their gas – on multiple days. Data from Gas Alberta Inc. show AECO prices fell to -7 cents from Oct. 5 through Oct. 9, and were also negative on Sept. 25. On Thursday morning, the price of natural gas in the province jumped to $1.81 per gigajoule but King warned, “It could crash again tomorrow.” As a result of the volatility in the Alberta market, Kelt Exploration Ltd. announced last week it would temporarily shut in 21.4 million cubic feet of daily natural gas production.

Some 58% expect a net decrease in rig deployment. On the midstream side, 56% of executives expect a decrease in capital expenditures in 2018 versus 2016, while only one in eight expect an increase over the next year, the survey found.
