Near-curve gas prices were dictated by unplanned outages yesterday and recorded strong gains despite below average demand levels.

Outages in the UKCS and Norway continued to restrict supply levels and provided support to prices at the front of the gas curve yesterday afternoon. The return of the North Morecambe gas field was postponed for another 4 days, while St Fergus was pushed back to tomorrow. Weak demand levels limited the gains, while a rise in EUA carbon prices helped towards increases at the back of the curve.
