Forward and futures markets

Severely depleted gas stocks in the US will support the Henry Hub front-month futures price over the coming months.

Above-average temperatures in the US have hindered the rate of net gas injections into storage sites so far during the summer, despite rising domestic gas production. The weather is expected to remain favourable to gas demand for the rest of the injection season, which will support the front-month price. High LNG and pipeline gas exports from the US will also limit the injection rate.
