Demand could be mixed as the reclosing of some states in the US will ease demand and this will be offset by warmer normal weather which should buoy cooling demand. The only tropical cyclone activity is tropical storm Faye which is rising the east coast but is unlikely to generate any damage to natural gas infrastructure. The number of active rigs declined by 4 this week, with natural gas account for 2 and oil accounting for a decline of 2. Natural gas is one of the main sources of energy in the United States in 2019 according to the EIA.
