US natural gas futures rose above $5.7 per million British thermal units on Friday, bouncing back from a three-month low of $5.357 hit in the previous session, as the contract found support from dip buyers and forecasts pointing to hotter weather in the first half of July, which could boost cooling demand. Still, the contract is set for a 7.9% drop this week, reflecting rising inventories. The US domestic market has absorbed an additional 2 bcf of natural gas per day since the explosion at Freeport LNG, which is now expected to return to partial operations in October, according to the company. The extra fuel allowed utilities to inject 82 bcf of gas into underground storage last week, according to the EIA, which largely beat median estimates of a 74 bcf build.

Historically, Natural gas reached an all time high of 15.78 in December of 2005. Natural gas - data, forecasts, historical chart - was last updated on July of 2022.

Natural gas is expected to trade at 6.97 USD/MMBtu by the end of this quarter, according to Trading Economics global macro models and analysts expectations. Looking forward, we estimate it to trade at 7.80 in 12 months time.
