EIA: Norway supplied 21% of Europe’s natural gas in 2013

Norway, the world's third-largest natural gas exporter after Russia and Qatar, supplied 21% of total European gas needs in 2013, according to data from the US Energy Information Administration.

EIA estimates that Norway produced 3.97 tcf of dry gas in 2013, a decline of 0.18 tcf from 2012. As a result of its modest domestic demand, Norway’s net exports for 2013 were 3.8 tcf of gas, representing 96% of its production.

“Norway's natural gas reaches the Continent mainly via its extensive export pipeline infrastructure, while a small fraction is exported as LNG by tanker. The largest recipients of Norway’s natural gas exports in 2013 were the UK, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Belgium,” EIA said.

Norway's single largest gas field, Troll, produced 1 tcf in 2013, according to estimates from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, which accounted for 27% of Norway’s total gas production that year. Three other major producing fields in 2013 were Ormen Lange (0.76 tcf), Asgard (0.34 tcf), and Kvitebjorn (0.24 tcf). These four fields produced over 60% of Norway's total dry gas in 2013.
