Summary

On Friday, the January 2021 NYMEX natural gas futures price rose 6.8 cents on the day to settle at $2.575/MMBtu. Last week, Q1 2021 fell about 26 cents, a steep decline due to moderate temperatures across most of the country and an extremely bearish storage withdrawal reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration on Thursday for the week ending Nov. 27. Cal ‘21 has fallen about 19% over the past month, the majority of the downward pressure due to weather. November came in as the fourth warmest on record, and forecasts show continued mild temperatures through the end of the year. Demand from LNG exports has continued its upward climb, reaching an all-time high of 11.5 Bcfd on Saturday. U.S. Dry production is averaging 90 Bcf/d so far this month, down slightly from the 91 Bcf/d reached two weeks ago. If the mild weather persists into January, support for natural gas prices may continue to weaken.
