Oil prices added ground on Tuesday, bolstered by declining Venezuelan and Iranian exports and violence in Libya, which raised concerns over global crude supply.  Meanwhile, expectations for higher U.S. inventories limited gains. Brent crude rose by 0.8% to $71.72 a barrel, while WTI Crude increased by 1% to $64.05 a barrel.

British gas prices extended losses on Tuesday on milder weather forecasts and strong LNG imports. NBP spot plunged by 5.2% to 35.30 p/therm, while the contract for delivery in Q4 2019 traded 0.8% lower at 54.03 p/therm.

 

European day-ahead power prices decreased on Tuesday. The price for the German day-ahead power contract dropped by 2% to 40.81 EUR/MWh, due to increased renewable output. Meanwhile, the equivalent French contract traded 6.6% lower at 42.26 EUR/MWh, because of stable nuclear availability.

 

Along the curve, electricity prices also declined, tracking lower gas and coal prices. The price for the German power contract for delivery in 2020 fell by 1.3% to 50.23 EUR/MWh, while the equivalent French contract closed 1.3% down to 53.11 EUR/MWh.
