List of natural gas fields


List of natural gas fields

This list of natural gas fields includes major fields of the past and present.

N.B. Some of the items listed are basins or projects that comprise many fields (e.g. Sakhalin has three fields: Chayvo, Odoptu, and Arkutun-Dagi).

Amounts in parentheses are estimated reserves in trillion cubic feet (TCF) and 109 m³.
