Back-to-back arctic blasts have led to a sharp drawdown of U.S. natural gas supply, with the situation aggravated in the upper Midwest by a pipeline explosion two days ago in Canada.

"Swaps are rallying hard because of natural gas," said a trader. "I heard the problem was caused by the pipeline explosion," added another trader.
