EIA Natural Gas Storage Report 03-15-18

EIA Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report 03-15-18

U.S. utilities likely withdrew 96 billion cubic feet (bcf) of natural gas from storage last week, about average for this time of year, a poll of analysts showed on Wednesday.

That compared with a year-earlier decline of 55 bcf and a five-year average decrease of 97 bcf for the corresponding period. In the prior week ended March 2, utilities pulled 57 bcf out of storage.

If correct, total stocks would fall to 1.529 trillion cubic feet (tcf), the lowest amount of gas in storage since 2015. That would put inventories about 32 percent below the level in the same week a year ago and 16 percent below the five-year average.


Early estimates for the week ending March 16 ranged from withdrawals of 80 bcf to 101 bcf, with an average decline of 91 bcf. That compares with a decline of 137 bcf for the same week last year and a five-year average decline for the week of 53 bcf.
