List of countries by natural gas production

2009 Natural Gas Production

World Production of Natural Gas in 2009- 2010 Statistical Yearbook


In 2009, world production of natural gas was cut down by 2.8%[1]. Different trends were noticed among largest gas producers. The US became the world's largest gas producer in 2009, exceeding Russian volumes[2]. Its production increased by 4.4% and balanced a shrinking output in the European countries (-9%, despite increasing outputs in Norway and the Netherlands). The OECD thus posted a slight growth of 0.1% in 2009. Conversely, gas production in Russia was scaled down by 12% while Algeria experienced a substantial decline in its production (-6%). In the Middle East, gas production development slowed down and grew at a slower pace than the previous year (4% from 7% in 2008).

This is a list of countries by natural gas production mostly based on The World Factbook [1].
