Nat Gas News – October 4, 2017

Natural Gas Falls Even as EIA Confirms Bullish Supply Data

Nasdaq reports: The U.S. Energy Department’s weekly inventory release showed a smaller-than-expected increase in natural gas supplies. However, unfavorable weather forecasts and strength in the commodity’s production, induced a minor drop in prices. Shrugging off EIA’s latest commentary, natural gas prices edged down 0.5% last week to settle at $3.007 per MMBtu on Friday as investors chose to concentrate on below-normal temperature predictions (translating into easing cooling gas demand) over the first few days of October. Prices were further dented by the continued strength in dry gas production. Despite occasional hiccups, long-term fundamentals for the commodity continue to be supportive on the back of structural imbalances. While domestic natural gas production is expected to rebound this year, the growing use of liquefied natural gas (or LNG), booming LNG and Mexican exports, replacing coal-fired power plants and higher demand from industrial projects will likely take care of the increased output.
