Natural Gas Summary and Outlook

A Drop in the Ocean? Is the Seaway reversal a non-event or contributor to $87.82 crude?

Yesterday (May 30, 2012) WTI Crude prices for July delivery dropped $2.94/Bbl – that’s nearly $3/Bbl to $87.82/Bbl. At the same time, ICE Brent dropped $3.45/Bbl to $103.23/Bbl. WTI crude prices have now declined 16 percent this month and seem firmly entrenched under $100/Bbl. What is causing this oil market free fall? Well it seems clear that the factors behind this decline are world economics not US fundamentals. The European banking crisis continues to drag on, to the detriment of recovery in those economies.

It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve looked at natural gas balances.  Since today is EIA Natgas Storage day it seems appropriate to check in on the progress natural gas producers are making to cut back supplies.  For readers not familiar with the quirks and foibles of the natural gas market, Thursdays are big days for gas traders.  On Thursday mornings at exactly 10:30AM central time the EIA posts weekly natural gas storage inventories.  Like other petroleum inventory numbers, these are not forecasts. They are EIA’s best guess at inventories at the end of last week.   If you are interested, here’s the URL: http://ir.eia.gov/ngs/ngs.html.

Bad Moon Rising? Cushing oil inventories are up 43%. Could oil be headed toward capacity problems?
