Natural Gas Falls After Stockpiles Decline Less Than Expected

Natural gas futures fell in New York after the U.S. Energy Department released its weekly stockpile report that showed inventories declining less than expected. Natural gas in storage fell 166 billion cubic feet last week to 3.4 trillion cubic feet. Analysts expected a drop of 172 billion cubic feet, according to the median of 21 estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Natural gas for January delivery fell 10.7 cents, or 1.8 percent, to $5.714 per million British thermal units at 10:31 a.m. on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The futures were trading at $5.907 before the report was released at 10:30 a.m.

Gas stockpiles reached a record 3.837 trillion cubic feet in the week ended Nov. 27, according to the department. Inventory declines have averaged about 2 trillion cubic feet in each of the past three winters. A similar drop this season would leave supplies at about 1.8 trillion cubic feet in April, or about 300 billion higher than average for that time of year.....Rad the entire article.
