    • Natural Gas Weekly Update Thursday, September 6, 2007

      Overview: Thursday, September 6, 2007 (next release 2:00 p.m. on September 13, 2007)

      Since Wednesday, August 29, natural gas spot prices increased at most market locations in the Lower 48 States, with a few exceptions in Florida and the Rocky Mountain region. For the week (Wednesday-Wednesday), prices at the Henry Hub rose 17 cents, or about 3 percent, to $5.81 per MMBtu. Yesterday (September 5), the price of the NYMEX futures contract for October delivery at the Henry Hub settled at $5.805 per MMBtu, increasing roughly 22 cents or about 4 percent since last Wednesday (August 29). Natural gas in storage was 3,005 Bcf as of August 30, leaving natural gas inventories at 10.4 percent above the 5-year average. The spot price for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil increased in all but one trading session during the week, rising $2.22 per barrel, or 3 percent, on the week to $75.74 per barrel or $13.06 per MMBtu.


      Despite seasonally moderate temperatures in all areas, with the exception of California and the desert Southwest, and favorable supply, natural gas spot prices rose at virtually all market locations this week. The holiday-shortened week and the resulting decrease in industrial demand did not provide significant downward pressure on prices. While spot prices at most locations decreased in the first 3 trading days of the report week, yesterday�s increases in prices, most of which ranged between 20 and 60 cents per MMBtu, were sufficient to offset beginning-of-the-week declines, resulting in net gains since last Wednesday. The weekly price decreases were limited to Florida and a few pricing points in the Rocky Mountains, with the decreases ranging between 19 cents and $1.08 per MMBtu. Yesterday, the Rocky Mountain regional price averaged $2.72 per MMBtu, with a minimum of $0.66 (Northwest South of Green River) and a maximum of $5.32 (Stanfield). In all, five trading locations recorded prices below $1 per MMBtu in the Rockies. Elsewhere in the Lower 48, prices for the week increased between 2 and 34 cents per MMBtu. The Henry Hub spot price rose 17 cents to $5.81 per MMBtu, matching the average price increase for the other trading locations in Louisiana. In the producing areas along the Gulf coast outside Louisiana, prices increased by an average of 24 cents per MMBtu. As of yesterday, only 12 trading locations registered prices higher than $6 per MMBtu, however, yesterday�s prices are on average about 7 percent above spot prices last year at this time, not including the Rocky Mountain region prices. Regardless of this week�s price increases, market behavior has differed in reaction to falling prices in recent weeks. For example, while Chesapeake Energy Corp. announced curtailment of about 125 million cubic feet (MMcf) per day of production from its fields in the Anadarko Basin and across Texas because it considers current natural gas prices inadequate, Williams Company and Anadarko Petroleum Company have announced that they view the current natural gas price levels as temporary and thus will not reduce their production.

      At the NYMEX, the

      Storage Highlights:

      Working gas in storage was 3,005 Bcf as of Friday, August 31, 2007, according to EIA estimates. This represents a net increase of 36 Bcf from the previous week. Stocks were 39 Bcf higher than last year at this time and 284 Bcf above the 5-year average of 2,721 Bcf. In the East Region, stocks were 126 Bcf above the 5-year average following net injections of 39 Bcf. Stocks in the Producing Region were 123 Bcf above the 5-year average of 780 Bcf after a net injection of 1 Bcf. Stocks in the West Region were 34 Bcf above the 5-year average after a net drawdown of 4 Bcf. At 3,005 Bcf, total working gas is above the 5-year historical range.

    • Summary of Weekly Petroleum Data for the Week Ending August 31, 2007

      U.S. crude oil refinery inputs averaged 15.9 million barrels per day during the
      week ending August 31, up 432,000 barrels per day from the previous week's
      average. Refineries operated at 92.1 percent of their operable capacity last
      week. Gasoline production rose compared to the previous week, averaging nearly
      9.2 million barrels per day. Distillate fuel production also rose, averaging
      4.3 million barrels per day.

      U.S. crude oil imports averaged over 10.2 million barrels per day last week, up
      415,000 barrels per day from the previous week. Over the last four weeks, crude
      oil imports have averaged nearly 10.2 million barrels per day, or 350,000
      barrels per day less than averaged over the same four-week period last year.
      Total motor gasoline imports (including both finished gasoline and gasoline
      blending components) last week averaged 1,314,000 barrels per day. Distillate
      fuel imports averaged 389,000 barrels per day last week.

      U.S. commercial crude oil inventories (excluding those in the Strategic
      Petroleum Reserve) fell by 3.9 million barrels compared to the previous week.
      However, at 329.7 million barrels, U.S. crude oil inventories remain above the
      upper end of the average range for this time of year. Total motor gasoline
      inventories dropped by 1.5 million barrels last week, and are well below the
      lower end of the average range. Declines were seen in inventories for both
      finished gasoline and gasoline blending components. Distillate fuel inventories
      increased by 2.3 million barrels, and are in the upper half of the average range
      for this time of year. Propane/propylene inventories increased 0.9 million
      barrels last week. Total commercial petroleum inventories declined by 5.4
      million barrels last week, but remain in the upper half of the average range for
      this time of year.

      Total products supplied over the last four-week period has averaged nearly 21.3
      million barrels per day, or relatively the same compared to the similar period
      last year. Over the last four weeks, motor gasoline demand has averaged over 9.6
      million barrels per day, or 0.5 percent above the same period last year.
      Distillate fuel demand has averaged nearly 4.2 million barrels per day over the
      last four weeks, relatively unchanged compared to the same period last year. Jet
      fuel demand is up 2.3 percent over the last four weeks compared to the same
      four-week period last year.

      "This Week In Petroleum"

      Released on September 6, 2007
      (Next Release on September 12, 2007)

      Measuring Oil Demand Growth
      Last Friday, EIA released monthly data for June, and for the 10th month in a row, total oil demand was lower than suggested by the weekly data for the same period. Gasoline demand was also lower than suggested by the weekly data for the same period for the sixth time in a row. The monthly data provide a less timely estimate, but one based on more complete information. Some analysts have pointed to the recent relationship between weekly and monthly demand data as an indicator that demand growth may not be as strong as markets once thought. However, a user should use caution when analyzing demand growth as there are many different comparisons.

      Several different comparisons of current data to year-ago data can be made. In addition to the monthly-based-on-weekly to monthly comparisons described above, analysts can make monthly-to-monthly, weekly-to-weekly, and weekly-to-monthly comparisons. Each comparison provides a different perspective on trends in demand growth.

      This can be illustrated using June 2007 data (see table below). When
