A stronger US Dollar, following the decision at the latest Federal Interest Rate meeting offered some support to the gas curve yesterday but the overall trend was bearish throughout the session. The main market driver was mild weather which has resulted in weak demand levels, keeping storage withdrawals to a minimum.

The UK gas system was long throughout yesterday’s session as residential demand remained below the seasonal average due to mild weather. The outage at the Bergermeer storage site was also expected to be resolved this morning and movement at the front of the curve was largely bearish. Contracts further out were more stable due to an expected drop in temperatures next week, while LNG supply remains weak.

The ongoing outage at the Bergermeer storage site in Holland and an unexpected issue at the Rough facility offered support to the near-curve yesterday despite a long UK gas system. Temperatures remained mild for this time of year, lowering demand, while UKCS production also improved. Elsewhere, LNG supply remains low due to supply shortages in the Middle East and Turkey.
