What's in this Global Natural Gas Industry Intelligence Product:

The Report takes a look at reserves, supply and demand, unconventional natural gas, LNG/CNG/NGLs/GTL technologies, pricing, and demand analysis. Furthermore, the report outlines the structure of the natural gas industry; presenting definitions, the techniques and methods of calculation, and an overview of the natural gas industry as a whole.

The Database contains information on over 94 countries providing, where known, the installed (nameplate) generation capacity for natural gas-fired power plants, and the proven reserves of natural gas. The data is presented in an annex to the report, and provided to you in a separate Microsoft® Excel® (.xlsx) workbook; for easy analysis and data manipulation.

Background to this Natural Gas Market Research

Carbon reduction commitments and low natural gas prices have made natural gas more attractive as a fuel for power generation and transportation. Traditionally natural gas was flared as a waste product of the oil industry. Now natural gas is a viable alternative to coal as a cleaner fuel for power generation and a cheaper fuel than oil for transportation in some sectors. Furthermore, natural gas liquids (NGLs) are increasingly replacing products from oil in the production of petrochemicals, especially ethane for naphtha.

Natural gas is now projected to become the number two fuel in the global energy mix, after oil. Not only is it one of the few viable alternatives in the power generation sector to back up intermittent renewables for power generation, but also the use of natural gas in power generation reportedly generates fewer CO2 emissions compared to oil and coal.
