Gas prices displayed a rebound during Wednesday’s session as the UK gas system fell short due to a drop in Norwegian supply. However, prices further along the curve were more resilient thanks to weaker coal and oil contracts.
Gas prices traded down on Tuesday thanks to an oversupplied system, as Norwegian flows ramped up. Far-curve prices ignored a rise in coal and oil as a healthy outlook in terms of fundamentals dictated the gas market.
