Report summary

All eyes are on the winter weather forecasts as US production, coal markets, and net exports all signal bullish prices. Under normal weather, residential, commercial and industrial markets will add about 6 bcfd of demand over last year. A few early Northeast pipeline arrivals, and a DUC drawdown aren't enough to offset anaemic drilling levels and production heading into the injection season, but we expect a production recovery next year, as gas rigs are being added back. While added renewables take some of the pressure off of fossil generating capacity, rising gas prices will allow coal to recapture some market share, even if the industry has to reinvigorate idled equipment and miners.
