EIA’s Weekly Natural Gas Storage Data Now Include Measures Of Sampling Variability
U.S. Energy Information Administration ---- Starting with the release of data for the week ending January 20, 2017, EIA's Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report (WNGSR) now provides information about the statistical properties of published estimates of weekly working natural gas levels and their net changes. The methodology for the storage data itself, however, is unchanged. The WNGSR provides estimates of working gas in storage -- the amount of natural gas that can be withdrawn to satisfy market demand -- based on a sample of storage operators in the Lower 48 states. Like other sample surveys, the WNGSR is subject to sampling error.
