Market Fundamentals Markets looked to be trending down today, but upon 8:30AM, jumped to the high of $2.529. The reason? Headlines. A lightening strike hit the Corinth Compressor Station in Mississippi this morning on the Columbia Gulf pipeline. A fire followed which led to an immediate shutdown of all physical flows. A force majeure was declared and a low of 0.4 Bcf/d in southbound flows is expected. ~CL
