Forward Look prices are in U.S.$/MMBtu for all points including those in Canada.
NGI's Natural Gas Forward Basis Prices are modeled based on indicative data obtained from exchanges and other third parties. "Fixed Price" represents the forward prices of natural gas delivered for each reference period at the various locations/hubs. "Basis Price" represents the differential, for each reference period, between the Henry Hub and various locations/hubs. The Summer and Winter prices are simple averages of Apr-Oct (7 months) and Nov-Mar (5 months) respectively. "Bal Smr" and "Bal Wtr" prices represent simple averages of the remaining months in those seasonal strips (after at least one month has passed).

Natural gas futures rallied several cents Tuesday, aided by an uptick in anticipated weather-driven demand and a dip in daily production estimates. Spot prices, meanwhile, were mixed, as declines in the Northeast countered gains further west; the NGI Spot Gas National Avg. added 0.5 cents to $2.305/MMBtu.
After driving prices lower the previous few sessions, natural gas bears took a break Tuesday as prices notched a small increase despite an uninspiring forecast. In the spot market, some springtime snow and chilly temperatures accompanied further gains in the Rockies as shoulder season conditions resulted in minimal day/day adjustments for most other regions; the NGISpot Gas National Avg. added 6.0 cents to $2.205/MMBtu.
A shoulder season mix of both heating and cooling demand supported modestly higher natural gas spot prices for the week ended May 3; the NGIWeekly Spot Gas National Avg. climbed 11.0 cents to $2.165/MMBtu.
A lack of weather-driven demand, combined with an exceptionally large weekly inventory build, proved too much for natural gas futures bulls to overcome Friday as prices skidded lower for a second straight session. In the spot market, shoulder season temperatures tamped down buying interest in deals for weekend and Monday delivery; the NGI Spot Gas National Avg. slumped 9.0 cents to $2.105/MMBtu.
With the strongest demand on tap for this week and the potential for moderating temperatures in May, traders quickly reversed the previous day’s gains and sent natural gas futures slightly lower on Tuesday. The June Nymex gas contract slipped 1.8 cents to $2.575, and July fell 2.3 cents to $2.617.
After a brief dip into the red, the May Nymex gas futures contract rolled off the board 5.2 cents higher at $2.566/MMBtu Friday as weather models intensified an expected cold snap in the northern United States while also increasing heat for the southern states. June, which takes over the prompt-month position on Monday, settled at $2.58, up 3.2 cents.
Despite prospects for brief upswings in natural gas demand, an overwhelming bearish sentiment continued to weigh on forward prices...
