Oil prices were mixed on Wednesday. Brent crude edged 0.1% up at $74.57 a barrel, due to ongoing worries that global oil supply would decline after the termination of U.S. sanction waivers on Iranian oil imports on May 1. In the meantime, WTI futures traded 0.6% down at $65.89 a barrel, weighed by stronger U.S. crude production and stocks. 

Ample storage injections and the disrupted exports via IUK pipeline put pressure on British forward gas prices on Wednesday. Furthermore, seven LNG cargoes are scheduled to arrive in the next seven days. The contract for delivery in July 2019 dropped by 1.2% to 34.17 p/therm. On the other hand, short-term forecasts for cooler temperatures and firmer consumption boosted the NBP spot price, which surged by 15.2% to 31.10 p/therm.

 

The European spot power prices diverged on Wednesday. The price for the German spot power contract spiked by 13.3% to 39.91 EUR/MWh, on expectations of a steep decline in wind generation. Meanwhile, the equivalent French contract price slumped by 14.2% to 28.66 EUR/MWh, due to rising renewables output and increased nuclear availability.

 

Along the curve, electricity prices lost ground, tracking the bearish movements on the carbon markets and a weaker energy complex. The German power contract price for delivery in 2020 fell 1% to close at 50.32 EUR/MWh. The equivalent French contract edged 0.5% down at 53.33 EUR/MWh.

 

EU carbon prices declined to technical supports levels in a weak session on Wednesday. The contract expiring in 2021 settled 0.5% lower at 28.14 EUR/tonne.

Crude oil futures continued to climb in an optimistic climate on Thursday, to hit their highest settlement since March amid lower U.S. inventories and hopes for a recovery in demand for black gold. Hence, Brent crude for July delivery rose by 31 cents, or 0.9%, to settle at $36.06 per . At the same time, U.S. WTI crude gained 43 cents, or 1.3%, to end at $33.92 per barrel.
