EIA reports a weekly rise of 35 billion cubic feet in U.S. natural-gas supplies

/ / News

The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported Thursday that domestic supplies of natural gas rose by 35 billion cubic feet for the week ended Aug. 28. That was generally in line with the increase of 34 billion cubic feet forecast by analysts polled by S&P Global Platts. Total stocks now stand at 3.455 trillion cubic feet, up 538 billion cubic feet from a year ago, and 407 billion cubic feet above the five-year average, the government said. October natural gas traded up by 4.3 cents, or 1.7%, at $2.529 per million British thermal units, little changed from before the supply data.
