Natural gas is the third most widely used energy source worldwide. Reserves are more widely distributed geographically than oil, although almost half of conventional reserves are located in Russia, Iran and Qatar. The United States is the world’s leading gas producer. It produces shale gas, a so-called unconventional natural gas.
