Additionally, a reclassification of working gas stocks during the report week reduces weekly net change. Non-flow-related adjustments decreased working gas stocks by approximately 5 Bcf in the South Central nonsalt region for the report week. As a result, the weekly net change understates the volume of natural gas that was injected into working gas. The implied flow for the week is an injection of 63 Bcf to working gas stocks.

Natural gas prices rebounded from the lows of the session, and finished down approximately 1.1%. Colder than normal weather is forecast to cover most of the US for the next 2-weeks putting a bid under prices. Net injections are lower than the 5-year average.
