Colder temperatures continued to push gas contracts higher yesterday, with a reduction in Russian flows via the OPAL pipeline also providing support. The drop in Russian supply was a result of a dispute between Gazprom, the EU Commission and PGNiG in Poland. A rise in coal and oil contracts and limited storage levels were also bullish factors.
Near-curve gas contracts moved higher yesterday with support coming from a strengthening coal market and an expected drop in temperatures in the second half of February. Storage levels were close to record lows across Europe, with an outage at the Rough storage facility continuing to fuel bullish pressure in the UK.
