US natural gas storage volume rises 63 Bcf to 2.568 Tcf: EIA

SP Global reported: US natural gas in storage increased by 63 Bcf to 2.568 Tcf for the week ended August 31, Energy Information Administration data showed Thursday. The build was slightly more than an S&P Global Platts’ survey of analysts calling for a 60-Bcf addition. The injection was more than the 60-Bcf build reported during the corresponding week in 2017 but less than the five-year average addition of 65 Bcf, according to EIA data. As a result, stocks were 643 Bcf, or 20%, less than the yearago level of 3.211 Tcf, and 590 Bcf, or 19%, less than the fiveyear average of 3.158 Tcf. The injection was less than the 70-Bcf build reported the week prior as population-weighted temperatures increased by 2 degrees across the Lower 48 states, adding 9 Bcf of additional gas-fired power demand, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics.
