Notes: Proved reserves of natural gas Generally taken to be those quantities that geological and engineering information indicates with reasonable certainty can be recovered in the future
from known reservoirs under existing economic and operating conditions. Reserves-to-production (R/P) ratio If the reserves remaining at the end of any year are divided by the production
in that year, the result is the length of time that those remaining reserves would last if production were to continue at that rate. Source of data The estimates in this table have been
compiled using a combination of primary official sources and third-party data from Cedigaz and the OPEC Secretariat.

World natural gas proved reserves in 2010 were sufficient to meet 58.6 years of global production. R/P ratios declined for each region, driven by rising production.
The Middle East once again had the highest regional R/P ratio, while Middle East and Former Soviet Union regions jointly hold 72% of the worlds gas reserves.

Source: Includes data from Cedigaz.

Notes: As far as possible, the data above represents standard cubic metres (measured at 15C and 1013 mbar); because it is derived directly from tonnes of oil equivalent using an average conversion
factor, it does not necessarily equate with gas volumes expressed in specific national terms.
Annual changes and shares of total are calculated using million tonnes of oil equivalent figures.
Natural gas production data expressed in billion cubic feet per day is available at www.bp.com/statisticalreview.

Less than 0.05.


Source: Includes data from Cedigaz.
Less

than 0.05%.
Notes: As far as possible, the data above represent standard cubic metres (measured at 15C 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.
The difference between these world consumption figures and the world production statistics is due to variations in stocks at storage facilities and liquefaction plants, together with unavoidable
disparities in the definition, measurement or conversion of gas supply and demand data.
Annual changes and shares of total are calculated using million tonnes oil equivalent figures.
Natural gas consumption data expressed in billion cubic feet per day is available at www.bp.com/statisticalreview.

Notes: The difference between these world consumption figures and the world production statistics is due to variations in stocks at storage facilities and liquefaction plants, together with unavoidable
disparities in the definition, measurement or conversion of gas supply and demand data.

Natural gas trade grew by 10.1% in 2010, driven by strong growth (+22.6%) in LNG shipments. LNG exports are dominated by the Middle East region; Qatar (the worlds
largest LNG supplier) saw its exports grow by 53.2%. LNG now accounts for 30.5% of global gas trade. Pipeline shipments grew by 5.4%, led by growth in Russia.
Europe and Eurasia accounts for roughly two-thirds of global pipeline gas trade.
