Updated to Q2 2017
Wholesale natural gas prices in Europe held firm in in the second quarter of 2017, supported by above-average demand for gas in power generation.
Rising coal prices over the past year have made gas more profitable in the electricity generation mix across much of mainland Europe, propping up demand and helping to offset the bearish impact of high exports from Russia.
A greater reliance on gas-fired generation in Spain and Italy is also expected in the peak of summer, as low rainfall has led hydroelectric reservoirs to be lower than usual, further propping up prices for Q3 ‘17.
Britain was the exception in the second quarter, however, as ample LNG supply and exports from Norway exerted pressure. Britain exported record volumes to Belgium over the period via the Interconnector pipeline, which went on to help replenish stocks at the Netherlands’ massive Bergermeer storage facility.
The first two LNG cargoes to reach northern Europe landed in Poland and the Netherlands in June, marking a new chapter in the US LNG export sector.
Prices at the TTF hub for gas supply for the coming winter in the Netherlands were trading around $5.45/MMBtu in mid-June, up from $5.35/MMBtu a year ago.
