NATGAS

  • The EIA weekly gas inventories for the week ending Jun 7 will be released this afternoon at 10:30 ET (15:30BST). The expectation is for a build of 73bcf according to a Bloomberg survey following a build of 98bcf the previous week. The seasonal normal is a build of around 99bcf.
  • US domestic natural gas production was yesterday at 99.5bcf/d according to Bloomberg compared to an average of 99.7bcf/d so far in June.
  • Domestic natural gas demand is today estimated at 69.4bcf/d according to Bloomberg. The NOAA forecast is again relatively unchanged on the day with above normal temperatures expected across most of the US throughout the 6-14 day period.
  • US terminal feedgas flows are today at 12.93bcf/d according to Bloomberg with Sabine Pass flows still holding below normal around 4.1bcf/d.
  • Export flows to Mexico remain strong at 6.9bcf/d today according to Bloomberg.
  • Nymex Henry Hub daily aggregate traded futures volume was at 639k on June 12.
