TTF Day-ahead Natural Gas Price Assessment

The Dutch TTF Day-ahead natural gas price is trading at lows not seen for a number of years

Natural Gas Market Overview

Updated to Q3 2016

European natural gas prices have come under considerable downward pressure in recent years, with the Dutch TTF Day-ahead contract assessed at €11.05/MWh in late August 2016. Having been worth more than €25.00/MWh in early 2014, the TTF price – which is a benchmark for the European market – has traded lower on improved global supply and lacklustre European demand. Weak oil prices have also contributed to this fall.

Much of the additional global supply comes from new production and exports from the US and Australia, which has allowed other exporters, such as Qatar, to send more natural gas to the NBP and TTF.

At the same time, traditional European suppliers in Norway and Russia continue to distribute their natural gas to the traded hubs in Europe.

Market highlight: UK South Hook LNG send-out hits record low in October

Market highlight: UK South Hook LNG send-out hits record low in October

Deliveries from Britain’s South Hook LNG site dropped by 88% year on year in the first half of October, amid strong demand in South Korea for Qatari gas over the period.

Shippers turned to gas storage facilities to cover the shortfall in supply, leaving sites even more depleted going into the winter months.

ICIS looks at why send-out from Britain’s most influential LNG terminal has fallen so sharply, in the context of an outage at Britain’s largest storage site – a time when high LNG send-out would have been a boon for the British market.

ICIS looks at why one of the most price-sensitive pipes in Europe became less so in gas year 2015, and analyses net British exports via the pipe as well as basis volatility.
