Here are the latest details from the U.S. Energy Information Administration regarding natural gas inventories.

Natural gas spot price movements were mixed for this week. 

The price of ethane rose 3% week-over-week, as the increased pace of Gulf Coast export terminals has grown the total demand to what was estimated to be the highest levels to date.

Propane prices grew by 1% week over week, indicating a relatively flat market for this time of the year. 

The Colonial Pipeline shutdown allowed for a higher blending of butanes into motor gasoline and led the prices of normal butane and isobutane to rise by 4% and 3%.  

Natural gasoline price fell by 1%, following the Brent crude oil price, which also decreased by 1% week-over-week.

The natural gas rig count decreased by 3 to 100, losing some of last week’s gains, while oil-directed rigs rose by 8 to 352.
