Natural Gas Production by Country Map

Volume of natural gas produced in one year in cubic meters

Natural Gas Production Map

World map of natural gas production by country. Colors represent the volume of natural gas produced in cubic meters in the calendar year.

Natural Gas Production by Country



Natural gas production not evenly distributed across the world. Some large countries have none but some tiny countries produce enormous volumes - sometimes from offshore gas fields.

The data in the table below was used to prepare the map at the top of this page. Production volumes in the table below are calendar year values for 2009 for most countries but where that data was not available a value for 2008 has been used. These are shown with an asterisk *. Production statistics from the CIA Factbook.

Constructing a natural gas pipeline. When wells are drilled in new areas there is often a problem getting the gas to market. A pipeline is needed to move the gas efficiently from the well to a market. Image © asterix0597, iStockphoto.

In some areas there is no pipeline to transport natural gas to market. In those areas gas produced as a by-product of oil production is usually wasted by flaring. Image © Omar Ariff, iStockphoto.
