Natural gas is an integral part of the energy balance and one of the core elements of sustainable economic growth. Natural gas has minimal impact on the environment. Using natural gas is the only way to simultaneous minimization of nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxide and micro particles emissions, at the same time ensuring uninterrupted affordable energy production. The natural gas industry has developed infrastructure, operates in market economy and does not require government subsidies.

Advantages of natural gas are obvious. So what has been hindering natural gas from becoming the basic fuel in the world market? What does the future hold for natural gas, how can it best reveal its potential?
