EIA sees rising US gas demand, exports pushing up winter Henry Hub prices

Rising domestic demand for natural gas and improved LNG exports heading into the winter are likely to combine with declining production to push up Henry Hub spot prices to average $3.38/MMBtu in January 2021, the US Energy Information Administration said Oct. 6. In its October Short-term Energy Outlook, EIA also forecast that spot gas prices would stay above $3.00/MMBtu throughout 2021. Total market production was estimated to decline from an average of 100.04 Bcf/d in 2019 to 93.88 Bcf/d in 2020 and 94.38 in 2021, although the levels were up from the prior forecast. EIA raised its fourth quarter production estimate by 2.15 Bcf/d to 96.48 Bcf/d and its its Q1-21 production forecast by 1.24 Bcf/d to 94.04 Bcf/d. For more on this story visit or click
