Crude oil prices inched up on Monday supported by the extension of OPEC-led supply cuts and a decline in U.S. crude inventories. Brent crude edged 0.6% higher at $67.54 a barrel, while WTI futures traded 1% higher at $59.09 a barrel.

British gas prices continued their bearish evolution on Monday, as robust flows and six new LNG tankers to arrive this week are expected to leave the system oversupplied. NBP spot fell by 0.5% to 38.10 p/therm, while the contract for delivery in Q3 2019 lost 0.7% closing at 38.91 p/therm.


Colder weather and waning supply boosted European spot power prices on Monday. The price for the German day-ahead power contract soared by 163.3% to 45.34 EUR/MWh, while the equivalent French contract traded 155.3% higher at 45.31 EUR/MWh, on reduced nuclear power availability.


Along the curve, electricity prices lost ground, tracking lower gas, coal and carbon prices. The price for the German power contract for delivery in 2020 dropped by 1.8% to 45.79 EUR/MWh, while the equivalent French contract ended 1.4% down at 48.92 EUR/MWh.


EU carbon prices fell to the lowest level this month, due to a bearish energy complex. The price for the 2021-expiry contract decreased by 2.9% to 22.66 EUR/tonne.
