Yesterday's comfortable UK gas system helped to push Day-Ahead prices a little lower. Despite this, ICE March 2013 prices closed higher at 66.470ppt; which could have been down to the UK Met Office comments regarding colder-than-average temperatures for the first fourteen days of March.
Strong gas demand on Friday along with lower pipeline flows meant the UK system remained tight. As a result of this, high storage withdrawals were required to keep things balanced. NBP spot and near curve prices were pushed higher before a late reversal after a sell-off.
