View from the Energy Traders


“Given the dark clouds descending on London today, I was a bit surprised to see gas demand open up at 223MCM, which was a bit lower than forecast yesterday for today. It seems that exports are a little lower at 15MCM, temps are set to increase on the continent, but remain no better than seasonal norm for the foreseeable future in the UK. Yikes.

The decision of Dutch court  to  halt production only  for Loppersum field, where production was already limited to 3bcm a year, moved NBP prices strongly down yesterday. Prices today corrected slightly upwards as demand for coming days...
