Natural Gas Storage Report Withdrawal Season Week 9 (Week Ending December 29, 2017)

2018 is here, and predictably the first report of the New Year was the largest draw yet of the season.

Natural Gas Storage Report Withdrawal Season Week 8 (Week Ending December 22, 2017)

Following an already elevated NYMEX due to recent colder weather patterns, this week’s 112 Bcf withdrawal fell right in line with the market expectation of 113 Bcf.

It may seem that the market is bouncing back since the injection of 2…

Natural Gas Storage Report Withdrawal Season Week 5 (Week Ending December 1, 2017)

In a bearish move, the EIA reported a 2 Bcf net injection for the fifth week of withdrawal season, which was notably off the mark of the market expectation of a 7 Bcf withdrawal. This injection also pales in comparison to last year’s withdrawal of 43 Bcf and the five-year average of 69 Bcf taken out of storage. Taking into account the tricky schedule of Thanksgiving/Black Friday and an unseasonably warm week,…
