Is Natural Gas Bottoming Out?

Posted by Acclaim Energy on Sep 20, 2012 10:28:00 AM

Analysts were expecting an injection between 60-70Bcf. Today EIA reported a build of 67Bcf, which met expectations for the week ending on 9/14/12. This data was below last year’s build of 89Bcf and the five-year average increase for last week of 73Bcf. With lower seasonal demand ahead of us, we could see negative pressure on prices. The only factor that could boost near-term demand for natural gas is the high level of nuclear plant outages, which currently stands at ~15,500MW.

The October-2012 contract has tested $2.745/MMBtu two times in the last two trading sessions, and during the next couple of days we could see a continuation of the bearish trend.
