We had another small demand loss overnight with cooler trends seen across much of the mid-con and East. Stronger mid-con and southern warmth will continue to add some late-season cooling demand through this weekend while the East will lean closer to normal along with belows out West. The pattern next week continues to feature persisting above-normal temperatures across the central U.S. while both coasts will remain closer to normal.


NYMEX Futures plunged after a two day rally due to mild weather, strong production and an announcement by the Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America (NGPL) that it delayed maintenance previously planned for the fall. NGPL posted to its electronic bulletin board


Tuesday afternoon that a series of planned hydro test dates on its Louisiana No. 2 Line were “postponed until further notice.”
