NOTE: Both the buy and the sell side of transactions are counted in this table, as they are in NGI’s daily, weekly and bidweek natural gas price tables, a standard practice which supports consistency and uniformity across products as explained in our price methodology.




Forward Look prices are in U.S.$/MMBtu for all points including those in Canada. "Fixed Price" represents the forward prices of natural gas delivered for each reference period at the various locations/hubs. "Basis Price" represent 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). For daily updates of these natural gas forward basis data in monthly bullets going out 5 years, contact sales at info@natgasintel.com.
