A fairly flat session to get the week underway seen yesterday.

The EU have signed off the 14th package of sanctions against Russia which, for the first time, includes a target on the countries gas exports – although remains limited in scope. As outlined last week, it targets transfers of Russian LNG between ships in EU ports but does not ban imports of Russian LNG into Europe.

Yesterday saw the TTF Front Month contract settle at €34.08 (from €33.94) and the NBP Front Month contract at 79.69p (from 79.15p).
