November natural gas prices extended this week's decline during the early morning hours and established a new contract low. Some traders suggested that the natural gas market came under added pressure in the wake of a weak outside market tone and milder weather forecasts in the US. While there does appear to be some demand coming from below-average US nuclear capacity, as well as strengthening Tropical Storm Ophelia, that has only offered a minor support this morning. Expectations for this morning's EIA storage report are for a build in the range of 85 to 90 bcf. This compares to a gain of 78 bcf for the same week last year and the five-year average injection of 72 bcf.
