Gas prices decreased on Tuesday with weak demand levels and falling commodity markets the main market drivers. The system was balanced but further unplanned outages in Norway offered some support to the prompt. The far-curve weakened as coal prices decreased due to Chinese workers agreeing to postpone holidays next month to avoid supply shortages.

Gas prices moved down yesterday afternoon despite an expected drop in temperatures and wind generation at the start of February. Improved Norwegian supply helped to weigh on the near-curve, while comfortable renewable power reduced CCGT demand. Contracts at the back of the curve also shed from their price and were dictated by losses on the coal and oil markets.

Near-curve gas prices moved higher on Friday afternoon following a downward revision in temperatures for February. However, the prompt shed from its price as mild weather and healthy wind levels were expected to continue at the start of this week and Norwegian supply was set to improve. Further along the curve, most contracts moved down with little support provided by fuel markets.

A weaker LDZ demand outlook in the short term continued to act as the main market driver for the near-gas curve yesterday and the majority of contracts stabilised. Meanwhile, the system was long despite further UKCS constraints and low Norwegian flows. Further out, prices displayed little movement as a bullish oil market provided support.

Weaker demand levels are expected over the next week or so as temperatures are set to remain mild. UKCS production also increased as a number of outages were resolved, helping towards an oversupplied system. Further out, any bearish movement was limited by a strengthening oil market.
