Russia ranks second among the leading countries in natural gas production. The world produces about 3.5 trillion cubic meters of gas every year. 2018 was a historic year for the global gas industry. Last year, 3.86 trillion cubic meters of natural gas were extracted around the globe (only commercial gas is taken into account, excluding flared and pumped gas at the fields). The increase in production for the year amounted to 164 billion m3, which is the largest increase in gas production since 2010.

In 2018 Russia produced a record 733 billion m3 of gas, which is almost 3 times the volume of the Azov Sea, which is 256 billion m3.
