Natural Gas Dropped Due To Rising Output And Lower Demand Forecasts.
Yesterday, natural gas prices experienced a slight decline of -0.4% to settle at 173.2, driven by several factors. Increased output contributed to a surplus in supply, as gas wells gradually resumed operations following disruptions caused by extreme cold in mid-January. However, the flow of gas to LNG export plants decreased, mainly due to ongoing maintenance issues at Freeport LNG’s facility in Texas.
Despite the rise in output to 105.4 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) in February from 102.1 bcfd in January, it remained below the record high of 106.3 bcfd in December.
