European gas prices continued to fall steadily on Friday, and saw minimal movement on Monday, as ongoing bearish fundamentals amid abundant supply and low consumption continues to weigh on the market.
The TTF price settled at USD 7.71/MMBtu on Monday, its lowest level since April 2021, and there are so far no signs that fundamentals will be significantly different this summer, reported Energi Danmark.
NBP has also slipped to its lowest level in more than two years and as of Monday the front-month contract closed at USD 7.09/MMBtu.
Wind generation was also seen picking up, with wind energy accounting for 14.8% of total power generation in the EU, WindEurope reported. In the UK, the share of wind in total electricity production was 23.1%, only slightly lower than the 23.2% seen in nuclear, reported National Grid ESO.
There have been no updates to Henry Hub, JKM, API2 Coal and US Gulf LNG prices on Monday due to Memorial Day celebrations.
