Middle East & Africa: Production

November 2016

Growth in the MEA’s gas demand is expected to outstrip output in the coming years, despite new fields coming online.

The combined marketed gas production by the key countries in the region rose by 2.7% on an annual basis in the first eight months of 2016, to 538.1 bcm. However, GGA expects the region’s overall demand to increase by 2% year on year in 2016 as a whole, to 777.4 bcm, and by 3% in 2017.
