After its 2021 rebound, global gas production remained stable in 2022.
Global gas production, which had increased by 4.3% in 2021, remained stable in 2022, in a context of lower gas demand, and as the fall in Russia’s production was offset by higher output in North America, the Middle East, China and Australia. Gas production fell by 12% in Russia due to lower exports to Europe. The continuous decrease in gas production in the Netherlands (-15% in 2022) contributed to a 7.6% drop in the EU gas production, which was partly offset by a higher output in Norway and in the UK. Gas production also declined in Africa (-4.8%), with lower output in Algeria, Egypt and Nigeria. Meanwhile, gas production continued to grow in North America (+4.8%, including +4.3% in the USA and +7.3% in Canada), in China (+6%), in Australia (+7.3%), in the Middle East (+3.2%) and in Latin America (+3.7%, spurred by the development of the Vaca Muerta field in Argentina and by Mexico, despite a nearly 7% drop in Brazil, where gas consumption collapsed).
