Higher wind speeds weighed on the outlook for demand from the power sector. UK gas production also remained strong. Oil trended down but did recover during the day. Wednesday was mixed despite higher demand and disruption at the St Fergus gas platform.  Higher Norwegian gas flows kept gains at bay.  Prices recovered on the penultimate working day with the main bullish signal being a drop in Norwegian gas flows.  The front month benchmark Brent crude price rose during the day with the EIA confirming US crude oil stocks were down 4.73 million barrels week-on-week.
