A rise in oil prices helped to push gas contracts higher yesterday afternoon with further bullish pressure provided by stronger coal and carbon. LDZ demand is forecast to fall next week as milder temperatures return to the UK and an LNG delivery is expected to dock at South Hook on Monday, limiting gains on the near-curve.

Improved Norwegian supply helped gas contracts move down yesterday afternoon, erasing some of the morning’s gains. Strong wind generation reduced CCGT demand but colder temperatures lifted residential consumption. Further out, bearish movement was limited by a jump in oil prices and stronger coal.
