Gas Power
Market Close Market Close
Gas prices moved higher across the curve during Wednesday’s session, with a significant drop in LNG send-outs providing bullish pressure on the near-curve. Increased storage injections and additional flows from the continent via the BBL & IUK pipelines were required to balance the system. Power prices moved down yesterday on the back of a mild weather outlook for next week and an expected rise in wind generation over the coming days. However, a rise in coal and feedstocks offered some support to the far-curve.
Market Open Market Open
Gas prices display little movement this morning despite weaker supply which has resulted in a short system. Norwegian flows have increased slightly to help offset the shortfall, while commodity markets have opened lower, offering resistance. Mixed changes can be seen across the power curve this morning with losses displayed at the front of the curve and some gains further out. Oil markets have eased down, while the Pound has strengthened, helping to pressure down most contracts.
