Early Morning Update

The Nov16 natural gas contract is trading down $0.04 at $2.95.  The Nov16 crude contract is down $0.51 at $50.34.

  

Summary

The prompt month natural gas futures contract finally dipped below $3.00 on Friday for the first time since Oct. 6, settling at $2.993/MMBtu.  Gas demand throughout last week decreased from 64.7 Bcf/d on Monday to just below 64.0 Bcf/d on Friday.   The Sabine Pass LNG terminal was restarted over the weekend, but the slow ramp in exports has had little impact on demand week-over-week.  Despite the bearish activity in the short term market, the current 2017-2019 gas calendar strips are up since Oct 1.  Most power prices nationwide are following this trend, as well.  Power burns are up 0.7 Bcf/d today, but remain down from last week. Temperatures in the Northeast are expected to be below average this week, which could put upward pressure on demand and energy prices.
