Daily Market Update March 17, 2022

Early Morning Update

The Apr ‘22 natural gas contract is trading up $0.08 at $4.83.  The Apr ‘22 crude oil contract is up $5.76 at $100.80.


Near-term natural gas moved in the green yesterday, as the prompt month broke its two-day slump and settled up 18 cents at just under $4.75/MMBu, despite warming weather and marginally increasing production. Ever-changing forecasts show some cooler-than-normal weather creeping back into the upper Midwest and New England just before the end of the month, but, as of now, appears short-lived as we look forward to April. Led by the southwest region, production continues to climb slowly but steadily, as we see the effects of increased drilling activity beginning to show itself. As we see these fundamentals begin to point toward spring, the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s storage report today is expected to show one of the last few withdrawals of the season, with estimates ranging from -53 to -87 Bcf.  The end-of-season storage level is now projected to be 1.4 Tcf.
