Calendar years 2024 and 2025 also settled higher, up 3.2 and 4.0 cents, respectively, while calendar years 2026 through 2030 all settled higher by 4.2 cents. Power burn has started to ease for the start of this week, mostly lead by the Northeast and Southeast as temperatures moderate.However, power burns are expected to pick right back up later this week as temperatures increase, yet again.So far, year-to-date power burn is up 1.3 Bcf/day versus this time last year, while month-to-date is up 2.3 Bcf/day, as well, or 6% versus June 2021. While LNG exports are averaging 11.2 Bcf/day this month, up 1.2 Bcf/day versus last year, the 2.0 Bcf/day Freeport LNG facility remains closed for repairs.Thus, the increase in power burn demand is offsetting the Freeport facility.Power burns are screaming in the Southeast region of the U.S., up 2.2 Bcf/day so far this month, which is a 20% gain versus June 2021.
