An above average weather forecast and improved Norwegian supply helped to weigh on near-curve gas contracts yesterday. Prices further along the curve were largely dictated by falling oil prices which hit a 7-year low in the afternoon. UK temperatures are expected to be around 10° for the rest of the month, around 5° higher than the seasonal norm, resulting in lower residential demand.

Gas prices moved down yesterday as healthy supply and below average demand levels dictated the market. UKCS flows were lower and residential demand displayed a small increase due to a slight drop in temperatures but the system was long on the back of strong Norwegian flows and a decrease in exports to Belgium.

Gas prices moved slightly higher by the end of yesterday’s session as the supply picture was less stable in the afternoon despite weak residential demand. The Euro also strengthened against the Pound which provided bullish pressure further along the curve and offset another drop in oil prices. However, the prompt displayed another loss as mild temperatures are set to continue in the UK.

Gas prices moved down across the curve yesterday as above average temperatures and falling oil were the main market drivers. The UK gas system was long throughout the session and an outage at the Rough facility prevented any storage injections. Demand levels remain very low for this time of year and another drop in Brent weighed on far-curve contracts.

The UK gas system was short for the majority of Friday’s session which helped to support front-month contracts. An outage at the Rough storage facility reduced storage withdrawals which contributed to the undersupplied system. Brent displayed a significant drop in the afternoon which provided some downward pressure but gas prices displayed another rebound later in the session to close at a premium.
