Bentek says that its Flow Model is at 138-Bcf draw this week and the SD Model at -133 Bcf.
|EIA's Weekly Gas Storage Report Report Date: 1/12/17|
Natural gas has been more of a head scratcher than normal lately, with weather-driven algorithm volatility and last week's 49-Bcf draw way below expectations. This seemed more than the south-central region. One of our favorites Gabe Harris of WoodMac was closest at -58 Bcf. "The large injection was driven by the largest salt dome injection to be recorded for a week ending in December of 19 Bcf.” Bentek offered.
Last week’s weather was 7 percent warmer than last year and 14 percent warmer than the five-year average. Since September, weather has been 7 percent colder than last year but 9 percent warmer than five-year average.
Actual -151 Bcf Prior -49 Bcf
Consensus Forecast - 139 Bcf
Cons. Range: -127.8 to -160 Bcf
EIA swap: -135 to -136 @ CT 15.13
“Inventories seem likely to continue bordering the five-year average line as current supply and demand dailyAnalysts Forecasts
estimates show an estimated withdrawal of 242 Bcf for the week ending Jan. 12, 72 Bcf stronger than five-year average levels and a withdrawal of 133 Bcf for the next week out, 43 Bcf weaker than the five-year average withdrawal. A withdrawal of 138 Bcf for the current storage week would take reported inventories to 3,173
Bcf, 9 Bcf higher than five-year average levels and 345 Bcf below inventory levels at this time last year.
Week over week, the largest change in storage activity is estimated to have occurred in the EIA south-central region, where a withdrawal of 25 Bcf is expected, compared to a reported injection of 14 Bcf the week prior. “However, the salt dome sample remained at a net injection, measuring 4.6 Bcf of activity compared to 11.3 the week prior, when the EIA announced the facilities had injected 19 Bcf into storage. Non-salt sample activity increased from a net withdrawal of 6.4 Bcf the week prior to a net withdrawal of 13.6 Bcf this week.”
