Blue Lacy Advisors, LLC - November Natural Gas Market Commentary
Minneapolis, MN | November 17, 2022 | By: Steve Sinos, Blue Lacy Advisors, LLC
Persistent infrastructure constraints, combined with mild weather, weighed on natural gas prices in the US and Europe. European inventory recorded another counter-seasonal build last week, swelling by 8 a billion cubic feet (“Bcf”) to reach 3.65 trillion cubic feet (“Tcf”). Stocks exceed the 5-year average by 230 Bcf and are within 5% of maximum capacity. Similarly, the US again gained on the 5-year average, as liquid national gas exports remain constrained and mild weather offers relief. This does not suggest that risk has left the market. Rather, it has been assigned to basis and paid for in options skew.
