Gas futures prices at the NBP eased fractionally as the market absorbed the potential impact of French nuclear outages and Russian gas supplies via the OPAL
pipeline being curtailed. Prompt gas prices, which had avoided the strong increases on the futures market during the previous session, did record some significant gains on Wednesday with the day ahead product up by 2.75p. News of a possible softening of U.S. sanctions on Iran saw crude oil prices fall by $1.60 a barrel.
