Natural gas statistics

The IEA’s Natural Gas Information includes detailed and comprehensive annual data of natural gas supply, demand and trade up to 2017, with provisional data for 2018. For OECD countries, it also contains data of gas consumption by end-use sector up to 2017 and of import and end-use prices up to 2018. The IEA also releases free monthly data on natural gas for OECD countries and provides a Monthly Gas Data Service.

The Gas Trade Flows (GTF) data service is intended to improve transparency in natural gas markets. This free service is based on an IEA data collection system that principally covers the European natural gas network, including pipeline and LNG physical flows by entry point. The dataset includes monthly gas flow data by entry/exit point (physical flows) for the 31 participating countries. Data are collected on a monthly M-1 basis. The information is collected by border-point, trade partner country, amounts (both in cubic meters and Terajoules), and maximum flow capacity.
