As the U.S. government’s partial shutdown enters its sixth day, rest assured that the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) is still at work and that energy inventory reports will be released as scheduled.

“EIA is not affected by the lapse in funding for some federal agencies,” a spokesperson told NGI. On the agency's website, EIA added that it has "FY 2019 appropriations and will continue publishing and collecting data."

EIA’s natural gas storage report for the week ending Dec. 21, pushed back a day due to the Christmas holiday, will be released as previously scheduled on Friday at 10:30 a.m. Eastern.
