The United States which has become the world leader in oil and gas production growth and has consolidated its position as top consumer, with significant repercussions on the flow of crude, petroleum products and LNG.
2013 gas reserves increased 1.7% according to the report, mostly thanks to the East Africa new gas discoveries.

On the other hand, growth in gas consumption was rather modest in 2013 (1% vs the 2.5% average per year from 2000 to 2013), also due to a deceleration in demand growth in non-OECD countries. The vast availability of domestic gas production sustained US consumption (+2%), confirming its position as the biggest gas consumer in the world. (By LNG World News)
