EIA Natural Gas Report  
Released On 4/12/2018 10:30:00 AM For wk4/6, 2018
PriorActual
Weekly Change-29 bcf-19 bcf

Highlights
Natural gas in storage fell 19 billion cubic feet in the April 6 week to 1,335 bcf. The uncharacteristic drawdown in the first week of the traditional start of the injection season, when weekly builds are the norm, compares with a 10 bcf increase last year and a 16 bcf average increase over the last five years in the comparable week. Draws of 20 bcf and 12 bcf in the Midwest and East regions, respectively, more than offset builds in the other regions of the country. Gas stocks remained within the 5-year historical range for this time of year but were 35.2 percent below last year's level and 21.9 percent below the 5-year average for the period.

Definition
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) provides weekly information on natural gas stocks in underground storage for the U.S. and five regions of the country. The level of inventories helps determine prices for natural gas products.  Why Investors Care
