Basically, it was a case of supply increasing faster than demand that convinced the EIA that inventories would continue to rise at a near record pace until at least the end of October.

According to the EIA, natural gas inventories at the end of July were 23% higher than a year ago and 2% above the previous five-year average for that week at 2.91 trillion cubic feet (Tcf).
