February 12, 2020  
This Thursday, we expect EIA to report 2,492 bcf of working gas in storage for the week ending February 7. We anticipate to see a draw of 117 bcf, which is 16 bcf larger than a year ago but 14 bcf smaller vs. the 5-year average. Non-degree-day factors are having a minor bullish impact on potential natural gas consumption (compared to 2019). ECMWF 00z model was very bullish vs. yesterday's results. From February 17, total degree days are projected to trend mostly sideways. Nuclear outages are rising and should continue to rise rise until mid-April (at least).
February 11, 2020  
Total consumption of dry natural gas in November 2019 decreased in three of the four consuming sectors, but overall edged down by only 0.40% y-o-y (despite substantially weaker TDDs). Total natural gas exports were the highest for any month since EIA began tracking monthly exports in 1973. Under the latest weather forecasts, we project that U.S. natural gas consumption will rise by 2.64% y-o-y (on average) over the next three months (February to April). Over the next three months, total supply will be growing slower (on an annualized basis) than total demand, ensuring that total supply-demand balance will be tighter (relative to 2019). Our end-of-season storage index currently stands at 1,731 bcf, which is below market expectations of 1,895 bcf.
February 5, 2020  
This Thursday, we expect EIA to report 2,615 bcf of working gas in storage for the week ending January 31. We anticipate to see a draw of 131 bcf, which is 97 bcf larger than a year ago and 12 bcf larger vs. the 5-year average. Non-degree-day factors are having a minor bullish impact on potential natural gas consumption (compared to 2019). ECMWF 00z model was very bearish vs. yesterday's results, but total degree days are still projected to rise above the norm on Feb. 14. Combined LNG stocks (at six major facilities) currently stand at just 54% of total observed capacity.
January 31, 2020  
Total demand for U.S. natural gas is down 12.3% y-o-y to 119.5 bcf/d, but is projected to rise next week. Total U.S. natural gas supply is up 5.4% y-o-y to 103.5 bcf/d, but the growth rate should continue to slow. We currently expect the EIA to report a draw of 131 bcf next week, 97 bcf smaller than a year ago and 12 bcf smaller vs. the five-year average. TDDs are generally projected to trend higher, but remain below the norm (until at least Feb. 10 - Feb. 11). Natural gas storage "surplus" relative to the five-year average is currently projected to shrink by -44 bcf over the next three weeks.
January 30, 2020  
The weight of the Electric Power sector in the natural gas market continues to grow. NG/Coal spread has totally plunged - natural gas has never been so competitive for electricity generation (vs. coal) as it is today. Coal-to-gas-switching currently stands at around 7.6 bcf/d, some 1.8 bcf/d above the five-year average, and 1.3 bcf/d above last year's level. Wind, hydro, and solar generation can displace no less than 5.0 bcf/d of potential natural gas consumption in the Electric Power sector in February. Total natural gas balance in February is currently projected to be tighter than last year, but only by around -0.9 bcf/d, which is still a minor bullish signal.
