Gas prices were slightly bullish yesterday with marginal gains displayed on fuel markets and a slight drop in supply offering support to the curve. UKCS flows were restricted by industrial action taking place at gas fields, while CCGT demand remained high due to weak wind generation.

Gas prices moved higher yesterday afternoon due to a short system and a rebound on the coal market. Low renewables lifted CCGT demand, contributing to the undersupplied system. Carbon prices also remained bullish and additional support was provided by planned industrial action at sites in the UKCS.

Gas prices eased down on Friday with a drop in coal prices the main factor behind losses at the back of the curve. Reduced Chinese demand over the last few weeks has boosted coal stocks, resulting in a bearish market. Meanwhile, a rise in renewable levels resulted in slightly lower CCGT demand, weighing on the prompt.

Minor upward movement could be observed across the gas curve yesterday despite bearish coal and oil markets. Instead, prices were dictated by a rise in CCGT demand as a result of weak renewable power, with stronger carbon contracts also a bullish factor.
