Excludes gas flared or recycled gas. Includes natural gas produced for Gas-to-Liquids transformation.
As far as possible, the data above represents standard cubic metres (measured at 15ºC and 1013 mbar); as they are derived directly from tonnes of oil equivalent using an average conversion factor, they do not necessarily equate with gas volumes expressed in specific national terms.
This statistic was compiled using several editions of the report.
