Technology expands recoverable resources

  • Less than 15 percent of recoverable natural gas resources have been produced
  • Remaining natural gas resources can provide more than 200 years of supply at current demand
  • Natural gas resource estimates keep rising as technology unlocks resources previously considered too difficult or costly to produce
  • About 45 percent of remaining natural gas resources are from unconventional sources like shale gas, tight gas and coal-bed methane
  • Natural gas resources are geographically widespread
