Weekly Energy Market Update: November 30, 2015

read | Share:

Last week, we explained how natural gas basis is the difference between various price points across the United States and the Henry Hub. 

This week, in the Weekly Energy Market Update for November 30, 2015, Tim Bigler — Direct Energy Business Energy Advisor — highlights interesting price trends at some of the other price points, including Algonquin Citygate and Dominion South Point. 

Watch the video below to hear what he had to share. 

Natural Gas Basis

As we discussed last week, natural gas basis is simply the price differential between various price points in the United States and the Henry Hub. This week, we examined two of those other price points: Algonquin Citygate (which covers New England) and Dominion South Point (which includes portions of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia). 

Algonquin Fixed Price

Examining recent New England price information for April-October 2016, it appears that every time the fixed price trades near the $2.50 mark, the price seems to rebound. This implies that $2.50 might be fixed price support for the April-October 2016 time period. 

Dominion Fixed Price

Similar to New England prices, whenever the Dominion South Point fixed price for 2016 trades near the $1.50 mark, prices seem to rebound. 


Why do these prices trends matter? Because they may help indicate strategic buy points for your business in those markets.
