Futures Climb to $7.50 on Hurricane Concerns; After-Session False Iran Rumor Moves Prices Even Higher

After natural gas futures played dead on Monday with minimal activity in either direction, traders were awaiting a spark to steer the market’s next direction. They got that spark Tuesday as AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center Chief Forecaster Joe Bastardi warned that the U.S. Gulf Coast, which avoided the wrath of major storms and hurricanes in 2006, is at much higher risk of destructive tropical weather this year (see related story). April natural gas, which expires Wednesday, soared to a high of $7.530 Tuesday before settling at $7.503, up 24.9 cents on the day. The May contract, which takes over front-month status in after-hours trading Wednesday, added 23.2 cents Tuesday to finish at $7.615.

Withdrawal Makes Summer’s Storage Climb Even Tougher

The winter apparently isn’t dead yet. After two weeks of solid net injections into gas storage, market observers were startled Thursday morning when the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported a 9 Bcf net withdrawal during the past week. It was clearly a step in the wrong direction if the industry plans to make an attempt at rivaling the record injection rate in 2001 just to get storage back to near adequate levels by the beginning of next winter.
