Near-curve gas prices were generally stable yesterday due to scheduled maintenance at Norway’s Dornum terminal which will limit flows into Europe. The short term supply/ demand picture is rather healthy but there are some concerns in regards to winter storage levels due to Rough’s closure and restrictions at Groningen. Further out, prices were pressured down by falling coal and oil markets.
