  • Gas slows down but still expands its role Global gas consumption grows at 100 bcm/year, or a Russia in 5 yearsor a Russia in 5 years. 5 year growth revised down by 70 bcm, due to EU demand and Middle East/Africa supplyEU demand and Middle East/Africa supply At 2.4%/year, gas is growing faster than oil or overall energy use but continues to fall behindoverall energy use but continues to fall behind coal Transportation emerges as a major demand p g jdriver, accounting for 10% of gas demand growth, driven by China and the United States© OECD/IEA 2013
