European gas (GASNLBASEOCT18) and power (DEBYF9) markets remain on fire. EU Carbon (EMISSIONSDEC18 or CFIZ8) has jumped 22% in just three days to reach €25/ton, a 10-year high. Strong Asian demand has been diverting LNG away from Europe while Equinor executives last week told reporters that EU Carbon prices need to rise above €30/ton to boost the coal-to-gas switch.
The warm summer needs to turn into a mild winter in order to avoid a spike in domestic heating bills over the coming months. The cost of winter gas (GASNLBASEWIN18) already exceeds the “Beast from the East” spike seen last winter.
