Natural Gas Gained on Soaring Global Gas Prices that Should Boost US LNG Prices

  • Commodities Analysis

Natural Gas yesterday settled up by 1.02% at 297.7 on soaring global gas prices that should boost U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) prices. That small price increase came despite forecasts for less hot weather and lower air conditioning demand next week than previously expected. In Texas, meanwhile, less hot forecasts caused the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), the grid operator for most of the state, to lower its peak demand forecasts for the next week to below the high for the year hit.  
Data provider Refinitiv said gas output in the U.S. Lower 48 states had slipped to 91.5 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) so far in July, due mostly to pipeline problems in West Virginia early in the month. Refinitiv projected average gas demand, including exports, would drop from 95.6 bcfd this week to 91.5 next week on expectations for less heat and air conditioning demand. The amount of gas flowing to U.S. LNG export plants has averaged 10.8 bcfd so far in July, up from 10.1 bcfd in June but still below April's 11.5-bcfd record. U.S. pipeline exports to Mexico have averaged 6.5 bcfd so far in July, down from a record 6.8 bcfd in June.
