Vague relaxation signals

The price of European natural gas falls noticeably

Hopes of a less tight supply situation caused the price of European natural gas to fall somewhat on Monday. In the morning, the price of the futures contract TTF for Dutch natural gas temporarily fell to 286 euros per megawatt hour.

In the morning the price was 300 euros. On Friday, the TTF contract was still trading at around 340 euros. The main reason for the price reductions at the beginning of the week is likely to be vague signs of relaxation in the supply situation. Despite significantly reduced delivery volumes from Russia, the filling level of the German gas storage facilities is approaching the 85 percent mark, which should actually not be reached until the beginning of October.

As emerged on Monday from data from European gas storage operators, a filling level of 82.74 percent was expected for last Saturday. “The storage tanks are filling up faster than specified,” said German Economics Minister Robert Habeck to “Spiegel”.
