US natgas futures end up nearly 4pc on more cold              NEW YORK: US natural gas futures rose nearly 4 percent on Tuesday, lifted by the return of weekday industrial demand after the long Presidents Day holiday weekend and by forecasts for continued cold weather in consuming regions of the nation.   "The natural gas market is staging a price recovery as updated temperature forecasts point to above average heating demand through the week ending March 8," said Citi Futures energy specialist Tim Evans.   Thomson Reuters Natural Gas Analytics data showed heating degree days over the next two weeks were "significantly above normal," especially for the western two-thirds of the country.   Degree days are a measure of departure in the mean daily temperature from 65 degrees Fahrenheit (18 degrees Celsius) and are used to estimate demand to heat or cool homes and businesses.   In addition, nuclear power plant outages remained well above normal, boosting near-term demand.   But some traders expect bloated inventories and the impending end of ...

Oil prices rise on forecasts for stronger demand NEW YORK: US oil prices rose again Tuesday, backed by forecasts for stronger demand as the market awaited Wednesday's weekly US oil inventory report.   A barrel of West Texas Intermediate for delivery in March settled at $97.51, up 48 cents compared with the level on Monday.   In London, a barrel of the European benchmark Brent crude traded at $118.66, up 53 cents from Monday.   The jump in oil prices came as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries revised ...
US natgas futures slip for 3rd day as temps turn milder NEW YORK: Front-month US natural gas futures lost ground for a third straight day on Monday, pressured by forecasts for milder weather in the Northeast and Midwest early this week, which should slow demand for gas used to heat homes and businesses.   Despite a blizzard that pounded the Northeast over the weekend, traders noted that winter was winding down and few expected much upside in prices. Inventories remain high, production is at or near an all-time ...
