Energies: Highlights | July 2014

[EN] The European gas price doesn’t stop to decline: prices dropped by -15.6% over the last five months. Meanwhile prices in the crude oil markets report an increase. This article analyses the latest price developments and most important key figures for energies.

Taking the past 12 months into account, we have observed a price increase for crude oil WTI (+3.3%) and Brent (+5.4%) as well as for natural gas US (+16.3%). Since US and EU natural gas markets are not highly correlated, we have noticed a price decline of -22.9% for natural gas in Europe.

During the last month, Brent (+2.2%) and WTI (+0.9%) have continued its upward trend, whereas natural gas US (-5.2%) and natural gas EU (-3.3%) have kept on declining. The highest price movements are still registered by the natural gas US market with an annualized volatility of 23.9%.

In order to provide a market visibility for European companies affected by raw material costs, the following analysis takes into consideration the price evolution in EUR unless specified. Please click on the raw materials below to receive more detailed information.
