Gas prices displayed losses on Friday afternoon following a rise in Norwegian flows, resulting in an oversupplied system. The LNG outlook for this week is also healthy, further weighing on near-curve prices. Meanwhile, movement on the coal and oil markets was minimal, providing little support to the far-curve.
Eurelectric has provided its analysis on the various consequences which could be caused by ‘Brexit’.
Gas prices turned bearish yesterday afternoon despite strong upward movement at the start of the session. The UK system was slightly short due to a rise in exports to Europe following the return of the interconnector pipeline, offering support in the morning. However, contracts were pressured down by a weaker demand outlook and significant losses on the coal market.
Gas prices increased yesterday with little change to fundamentals and support coming from the coal and oil markets. Gas demand was higher in the UK and the IUK interconnector was due back online today which will result in a rise in exports. Meanwhile, the outage at the Gjoa platform in Norway was unresolved, tightening supply levels.
