EIA's Weekly Gas Storage Report Report Date: 2/23/17
Release Time: Thursday 23 Feb 2017 - 16:30 GMT 10:30 ET

Same channel, Natural gas continued to sell all week to under 2.55 and March April to -.14 as demand collapsed.   Demand continues to suffer on warmer weather the saving grace is LNG exports hum along with Mexico exports steady.  Last week’s 114-Bcf draw from storage was the smallest draw in February, ever. The surprise again was in the the south-central region. At this pace flows will reverse to injection mode around mid-March, and not April the traditional end-of-season mark.

Market Expectations
Actual - 89 Bcf* Prior -114 Bcf*
Consensus Forecast  -84 Bcf
Cons. Range: -77 to -101 Bcf
EIA swap: -84 to -85 @ CT 15.13
