US gas futures rise 2pc NEW YORK: US natural gas futures rose more than 2 percent early on Friday, boosted in a second straight day of short-covering ahead of some late-month cold weather.   Thursday's much larger-than-expected drawdown from winter inventories the biggest in about two years also kept momentum to the upside, traders said.   As of 9:58 a.m. EST (1458 GMT), front-month February gas futures on the New York Mercantile Exchange were at $3.267 per million British thermal units, up 7.4 cents, or just over 2 percent.   The front month fell to $3.05 last week, a contract low and the lowest mark for a spot contract since late September.   In the cash market, gas for weekend delivery at the NYMEX benchmark Henry Hub in Louisiana was heard early up 10 cents at $3.18 on light volume near 332 million cubic feet.   Early deals also firmed to 4 cents under the front-month contract, from deals done late Thursday at a 10-cent ...

US gas futures climb after bullish EIA inventory report  NEW YORK: Front-month US natural gas futures held gains on Thursday after three straight losing sessions, backed by a government report showing a weekly inventory withdrawal well above market expectations.   The US Energy Information Administration report showed domestic gas inventories fell last week by 201 billion cubic feet to 3.316 trillion cubic feet.   Traders viewed the draw as bullish, noting it was well above the Reuters poll estimate of 186 bcf, the year-ago decline of 90 bcf ...

Mild weather drives US natgas futures down for 3rd day  NEW YORK: Front-month US natural gas futures ended lower for a third straight day on Wednesday, as fairly mild near-term weather forecasts and bearish government data on production this week continued to pressure the complex.   Despite expectations for a supportive weekly inventory report on Thursday - a Reuters poll on Wednesday put the withdrawal estimate well above last year and the five-year average - many traders expect prices to remain on the defensive with storage and ...
US spot natgas falls on mild weather outlook NEW YORK: US spot natural gas prices lost ground at every price point on Tuesday as mild near-term temperatures slowed demand and moderating extended forecasts dimmed chances that January would be cold enough to put a dent in record high supplies.   Without sustained cold to boost heating loads, most traders agree it will be difficult for gas prices to push higher with inventories still at record highs for this time of year and production at or ...
Most US spot natgas up on return of weekday demand, NY slips  NEW YORK: US spot natural gas prices rose at nearly every price point across the nation for a second straight session on Monday, boosted by the return of weekday industrial demand.   But with milder weather on tap for the Northeast, after a cold week last week, regional gas prices in New York showed the day's only losses.   Gas for Tuesday delivery at the benchmark supply point Henry Hub in Louisiana rose 10 cents on average to $3.30 ...
Drought-hit Brazil imports at least 2 LNG cargoes in Jan  NEW YORK: Brazil has imported two cargoes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the country's northeast so far in January, and more shipments are expected due to a severe drought that has reduced the availability of hydro power, according to Reuters ship tracking data and market sources on Monday.   The port of Pecem, a few miles north of Fortaleza, generally does not receive any LNG shipments in January, but the worst drought in decades has left ...
