Gas prices initially opened higher yesterday as outages in the North Sea continued to impact the UK system. However, prices moved down as the session progressed following decreases on coal and oil markets. Norwegian flows also improved slightly and an outage at a Dutch storage site restricted exports to Europe, helping to weigh on contracts.

Gas prices displayed mixed movement yesterday with unplanned outages providing support on the near-curve. LNG nominations were also lower, with concerns in regards to French nuclear power also a factor behind any increases. Further out, Brent was rather stable for most of the session and provided little support to gas contracts.
