An oversupplied gas system helped gas prices to decrease yesterday as demand levels were below average due to milder weather and BBL flows resumed. Residential demand was 22% below the seasonal norm, while BBL flows rose to around 12mcm. Losses were also evident further along the curve with further downward pressure coming from weaker fuel prices.

Maintenance in Norway continued to restrict flows in to the UK but above average temperatures and strong LNG supply resulted in a long gas system, contributing to losses across the near-curve. However, the downward movement was restricted by a halt in BBL flows and an increase in gas-fired power generation, while stronger oil and coal supported the far-curve.

Gas prices displayed downward movement yesterday as the UK gas system was 5mcm long despite scheduled maintenance restricting flows via the St Fergus terminal, reducing output by 19mcm. A drop in residential demand contributed to Tuesday’s oversupply, as did an increase in LNG send-outs. Meanwhile, weaker oil and coal prices applied bearish pressure further along the curve.

Although the temperatures dropped yesterday, the rest of the week is forecast to get warmer. It is this mild weather forecast along with strong supply that has pushed gas prices down again. A falling oil price has added bearish pressure also.

Gas prices dropped to a seasonal low on Friday on the back of warm temperatures and news of multiple LNG deliveries over the coming week. Demand remained low on Friday, especially residential demand which was 26mcm below seasonal norms, adding further bearish pressure to NBP spot prices which closed at their lowest mark since August.
