Government hypes gas crisis ahead of restarting drilling
Quick Glance: US Gas Surplus to be Eliminated by End of Winter 2024/25
  • U.S. gas inventories are nearing record highs for this time of year after exceptionally mild temperatures due to the El Nino weather phenomenon reduced gas and electricity consumption for heating in the winter of 2023/24.

  • Low prices are maximizing gas combustion by power generators and prompting producers to cut drilling, ensuring the surplus is eliminated before the end of winter 2024/25.

  • The massive carryover of inventories at winter's end was primarily due to exceptionally warm weather from strong El Nino conditions, with gas prices remaining near multi-decade lows.

  • Although prices have slightly increased, they are still close to historic lows, indicating gas-fired generators will play a significant role in electricity supply during the summer of 2024.
