NatGas Tries To Form Bottom; Inventories Poised To Hit 11-Year Low Next Week

March 06, 2014

Natural gas inventories fell a more-than-expected 152 bcf last week.


Natural gas was last trading up by more than 2.5 percent to $4.64/mmbtu after the Energy Information Administration reported that operators withdrew 152 billion cubic feet from storage last week, more than the 135-140 bcf that most analysts were expecting.

The latest withdrawal was above last year’s draw of 146 bcf, and the five-year average draw of 106 bcf.



In turn, inventories now stand at 1,196 bcf, which is 887 bcf below the year-ago level and 762 bcf below the five-year average (calculated using a slightly different methodology than the EIA).
