North America gas short-term outlook April 2018: summer bulls stretch their legs

Report summary

After the second coldest April in 30 years, storage levels will sit at about 500 bcf below the five-year average at the end of the month. The market's target for an end of injection season inventory level is the main question, and it appears more and more likely that the injection pace will need to be the strongest it's been since 2014 in order to reach normal levels. We see disproportionate upside risk to the summer forward curve, and while the injection season walks this tightrope, further supply-demand growth mismatches will only increase price volatility in the upcoming months.
