Inconsistent settles are continuing into June as less gas unit utilization on Friday and Saturday led to daily settles
over $100/MWh. The week settled 131% higher than the previous at $59.42/MWh. The forward curve is up
~1.00/MWh this week in response to further clarity provided by the Comprehensive Market Design 3. Most
revisions relate to the offering of units into the capacity market.
The front end of the gas forward curve is up ~$0.05/GJ, as Nova announced the system has higher base
operational capability in the East Gate Delivery Area. However, restrictions on exports are higher week over week
causing 52% lower AECO settles week over week at $0.62/GJ.
