America, the high natural gas prices globally, the historically low storage levels in Europe, and the continuously growing gas demand in Asia could incentivize the signing of more long-term offtake LNG contracts.

U.S. Natural Gas Market: Production Drops, Consumption Rises

Last week (ending Jan. 28), the number of heating degree days (HDDs) increased by 5% w-o-w (from 218 to 230). The total “energy demand” (as measured in total degree days or TDDs) was 12% above last year’s level and as much as 18% above the 30-year average. This week (ending Feb.4), the weather conditions in the contiguous United States have been warming up. I estimate that the number of nationwide HDDs will drop by 9% w-o-w (from 230 to 210).

The total “energy demand” (measured in TDDs) should increase by 12% y-o-y, while the deviation from the norm will moderate but will remain positive (+9.8%). Next week (ending Feb.1), the weather conditions are currently expected to warm up. In … For more info go to
