Gas statistics

Data on UK production, trade and demand of gas by sector, including natural gas and liquefied natural gas.

Gas statistics examine trends in gas covering:

  • production 
  • imports by country and method (via pipeline or shipments of liquefied natural gas)
  • exports by country and method (via pipeline or shipments of liquefied natural gas)
  • consumption  

While natural gas is the main focus of these statistics, data on liquefied natural gas (LNG) is covered in detail in both Energy Trends and the Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES). Data on colliery methane is provided in DUKES only. 

Our tables in Energy Trends and the Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES) include commentary explaining key trends. The chapters provide a more in-depth review for the most recent period.
