Goldman Sachs maintained its $6.80/$5.60 Henry Hub and 89/86 EUR/MWh TTF Sum22/Win22-23 price forecasts after the Freeport LNG outage, noting that the duration of the outage would be key.

But natural gas futures gained on Thursday on record power demand in Texas this week, rising spot gas prices, and low wind power.
