18 January 2024

Make the most of your gas storage!

KYOS gas storage and swing report Jan 2024Every quarter we publish an update of our Natural Gas Storage and Swing Report. It presents price assessments of a few standard storage and swing contracts, which you can benchmark to your own valuations. Above all, the report provides transparency to an otherwise opaque trading market, also revealing the underlying assumptions about market prices, market volatilities and trading strategies. Take advantage of our free service to you!

With our Natural Gas Storage and Swing report, we report about a few selected contracts. But of course we realize that you may have different needs! Our report compares the current quarter to the previous, but would you need data per month? Or do you need historical valuations? Or over a longer horizon? No problem, just contact us for more information.

We have in the past made customized reports for very different types of companies. For example, we provided data that was used in several arbitration cases between energy companies. Also companies used our analysis to facilitate their investment or divestment decisions.

Gas Storage and Swing Report – Market Comments January 2024

European gas prices continued to decline in the last quarter of 2023 on the back of weak fundamentals. The TTF contract for 2025 delivery lost 20% and NBP dropped by 25%. On one hand, gas supply remained strong: Imports from Norway increased by 15% compared to the summer months and LNG deliveries from the USA picked up as well. The EU gas storage levels at the turn of the year were filled at 86%, ample volumes to pass the winter (you can track storage levels and other statistics on our website gas.kyos.com).

Methodology

All valuations have been performed with KYOS software and models, KyStore and KySwing. KyStore and KySwing support traders, portfolio and risk managers in natural gas markets. Inputs include market parameters, together with our own suggestions, forward curves and other parameters and settings. The model calculates the intrinsic value based on the forward curve and takes tradable products and bid/ask spreads into account. Our software uses Monte Carlo simulations of spot and forward prices to provide the rolling intrinsic and option values. Numerous companies in the energy industry already use our valuation software. You can find more information about our gas optimization software on our solutions page here.
