Morning Energy Updates



Energy Markets: Another uneventful trading session for propane saw the major hubs of Belvieu and Conway end the day right where they began. As of 8:00AM CST, a weaker US dollar and the bullish API inventories have propelled the energy complex higher with WTI +1.2% while propane again outpacing the complex to the upside with gains of +2% at the major hubs.

API Weekly Inventory Update Falls on Bullish Side of Expectations: The American Petroleum Institute indicated a 5.8MM bbl draw in crude inventories last week—well above the 1.8MM industry consensus polled by Reuters. The bullish crude draw has sent both WTI and Brent crude higher as of 8:00AM CST, as US invento-ries and terms of the OPEC/non-OPEC agreement extension remain the crucial factors behind market movement.

Propane Stocks Projected to Build Slightly: According to a pre-release survey by OPIS, propane stocks are expected to rise by +275k bbl in today’s DOE report. This compares to the 10-year average build of +1,649K bbl this week of the year. With overall US propane inventories already below both the 5 and 10 year averages, confirmation of the pre-release forecast will provide more upward momentum to propane pricing in order to put propane stocks on a more reasonable build trajec-tory.
