We are helping to meet growing global energy demand and limit CO2 emissions by producing more, cleaner-burning natural gas. Natural gas powers, heats and cools industries, homes and businesses; it fuels trucks and ships as an alternative to diesel and heavy fuel oil; and it goes into many everyday essentials.
It highlights key trends from 2021 and looks ahead to possible future supply and demand.
Liquefied natural gas can be a cost-competitive and cleaner fuel for heavy-duty road transport, shipping and industrial users.
Our gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology uses natural gas instead of crude oil to make liquid fuels, base oils for lubricants and other high-quality products.
Methane is a potent greenhouse gas. When it is released into the atmosphere it has a much higher global warming impact than CO2. Natural gas consists mainly of methane.
This publication explains the critical role natural gas will play in the energy transition - in electricity generation, industry, the built environment and transport.
