European prices down again

European gas prices weakened again yesterday, still more sensitive to warmer weather and negative clean spark spreads on the spot and the month-ahead than to the drop in pipeline supply. Due to a series of unplanned outages, Norwegian flows have reversed their recent uptrend, averaging 318 mm cm/day yesterday, compared to 324 mm cm/day on Friday. Russian flows on their side continued to drop, at 260 mm cm/day on average, compared to 267 mm cm/day on Friday, significantly below the 371 mm cm/day on average of December 2020. The drop in US Henry Hub prices (as production issues eased) provided additional downward pressure.
