Rising coal prices and a short system did little to prevent gas contracts recording a loss yesterday, with the majority managing to erase Monday’s gains. An improved supply/ demand outlook helped to weigh on prices as Norwegian flows are set to rise and strong wind levels will reduce CCGT demand.

Gas prices increased on Monday as the system was undersupplied throughout the session and further support was provided by a rise in Brent. Demand levels were 14mcm above average for this time of year and the system started the session 9mcm short. On the far-curve, prices were dictated by rising oil on the back of a lower rig count in the US.

Gas contracts increased on Friday as supply levels tightened and oil prices increased. CCGT demand was limited due to the rise in wind levels, however a short system offered support to the near curve.

The UK gas system opened long on Thursday as Norwegian flows ramped up as the outage at Kollsnes was resolved; gas prices moved down across the near-curve as a result. Meanwhile exports via the interconnector were restricted at the start of the session due to planned maintenance, although LNG send-outs were slightly down.
