2022 Annual System Peak Summary

With the summer months behind us, we’re growing increasingly more confident that the Annual System Peak is behind us as well. Although there have been a few early September days in some years that have provided a little drama, the Peak has never occurred in any month other than June, July, or August in the past 21 years, according to data from ISO-NE.

Natural Gas Market Update

The natural gas marketplace has continued its volatile roller coaster ride through the summer months. Over the past month, we have repeatedly seen the prompt winter months trade between $8.00 to above $10.00. As gas heading to Europe has continued to decline, the markets have digested this forward demand by the day. Increased demand for LNG across the Japanese and Korean markets has held steady throughout the summer and Europe has never had higher demand.
