Definition: This entry is the stock of proved reserves of natural gas in cubic meters (cu m). Proved reserves are those quantities of natural gas, which, by analysis of geological and engineering data, can be estimated with a high degree of confidence to be commercially recoverable from a given date forward, from known reservoirs and under current economic conditions.

Description: The map displayed here shows how Natural gas - proved reserves varies by country. The shade of the country corresponds to the magnitude of the indicator. The darker the shade, the higher the value.
