Trends in the five countries with largest production of natural gas (data from US Energy Information Administration

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

As measured by the International Energy Agency, the top 10 natural gas producers in 2011 were (66.7% of total) (bcm): 1) Russia 677 (20.0%), 2) United States 651 (19.2%), 3) Canada 160 (4.7%), 4) Qatar 151 (4.5%), 5) Iran 149 (4.4%), 6) Norway 106 (3.1%), 7) China 103 (3.0%), 8) Saudi Arabia 92 (2.7%), 9) Indonesia 92 (2.7%), 10) Netherlands 81 (2.4%) and World 3 388 (100%).[2]

Production trends[edit]

In 2009, world production of natural gas was cut down by 2.8%.[3] Different trends were noticed among largest gas producers. The US became the world's largest gas producer in 2009, exceeding Russian volumes.[4]

In 2010, Russia returned to first place.[5] 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).
