Over the past week, the Pacific Northwest has been running on mostly hydro generation and a little wind as the natural gas noms have been showing less than .100 BCF taken off the pipe by gas fired generators.  There is some coal running for reliability purposes as they are using it for ancillary service reg up/down.  This is exposing the Pacific Northwest hydro system to what we call 'lack of market' spill where they take water and move it through the spillway despite having turbine capacity.  A good example of this can be seen on the Upper Columbia ... » read more

The month of February saw cash prices shift down to levels that prompted coal to gas switching, as a result, in the lower net load bins we started to see a response to power burns that shifted them closer to the 2016 level on certain days.  This was due to an abnormally warm temperatures throughout the country.  The early part of March stated to cool back down with the middle of the month giving the Midwest and Eastern part of the country a 'mini winter' as temperatures dropped and rescom demand shifted up.  As we move into the end of March it is clear ... » read more

Just a few short years ago the TransCanada Mainline, running from Alberta eastward to Quebec, was a crucial artery for gas supply in North America. Built in the 1950's, it was considered a cricial piece of infrastructure for heating the eastern population centers. But with the advent of shale gas production in the Marcellus and  Utica Basins, the pipeline is looking more like a fading star than a necesssity it once was. In an effort to find new markets for the production of inexpensive natural gas, pipelines extending from the United States into Canada are being ... » read more

The winter in the Pacific Northwest has been anything but normal.  A friend of mine said he heard, "if you are 32 years old or younger and have lived in Portland your whole like, this winter is the coldest you have ever experienced".  If you recall, the month of February was the wettest on record along with the average temperatures coming in 4-5 degrees below normal.  The colder jet stream from the Pacific Northwest northern region collided with the Pacific jet stream that pushed up from California and dumped plenty of snow along the I-84 ... » read more

Well folks … it looks like we have two NCAA tournament newsletters in a row. Yesterday’s was written by Midwest Jeff. Today’s written by Northeast Tim. You can probably imagine how pre-occupied our office is this week, between filling out brackets, tracking games, and talking trash. I come from New York State, Upstate New York. New York used to be a state that enjoyed a proud basketball tradition. Some of the greatest college basketball players of all time hail from New York – Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Pearl Washington, Chris Mullen, Julius Erving ... » read more

With the NCAA basketball tournament getting ready to start all I can think about is the Wisconsin Badgers making a run or the Minnesota Golden Gophers rising to the occasion as it is their first appearance with Richard Pitino as their head coach (son of Louisville's head coach Rick Pitino).  These are my loyalties along with the sleeper pick of the University of North Dakota as my father has told me so much about this team as he follows every team that is from his hometown state.  Each and every team has the same goals of reaching the Final Four and actually ... » read more

Looking at the nuclear outage schedule heading into this spring one area in particular stands out to us as ISONE is expecting 3 if their 4 units to come down sometime during April.  Seabrook (1,159 MWs) is expected to come offline on April 1st followed by Millstone 2 (882 MWs) and Pilgrim (685 MWs) on the 9th.  If we weight the capacity by the number of days offline April is expected to average 2,256 MWa worth of nuclear refueling outages on a daily basis.   Figure 1 | ISONE Nuclear Outage Schedule   NY is also expected to see some outages this ... » read more

It has been a long road to recovery for the natural gas production industry. A warm winter last year led to a swelled storage complex pushing natural gas prices down below shut in economics for many areas of the country. The result was a tightening of balance sheets for many producers. Production volumes fell with the capital expenditures. After some industry consolidation and a robust price recovery, we are starting to see a more positive view for the producer community. Prices have largely recovered and the prospect of additional market opportunities from ... » read more

As we get into the middle of March, the winter strip is coming to an end when it comes to the cash trading of the days, but Mother Nature is not through with winter quite yet as a cold ridge has set up over the Midwest and eastern portion of the United States.  This has left the grid quite a bit tighter as the rescom demand has shifted up from 25-27 BCF/d to 45-47 BCF/d. Ultimately, this has pushed the daily storage withdrawals back up to 25 BCF/d.  Figure 1 | Net Daily Storage As you can see in the graph above, after spending several weeks trending to ... » read more

  There is no lack of innovation in California. It is one of the state’s core competencies. Whether technology, environmental regulations, renewable energy, movies, or entertainment the Golden State leads the way. An innovation in the electricity market that has been steadily gaining steam over the last few years is the development of Community Choice Aggregators or CCA’s. CCA’s are governmental entities formed by cities and counties to procure electricity for their residents, businesses, and municipal facilities. Think about a competitive ... » read more
