Natural Gas Commodity Trading
Did you know that natural gas is the most environment-friendly fuel in the world?
It is the third most used fuel after oil and coal but is considered cleaner as it emits lesser amounts of harmful substances. Since it is combustible, it is used for cooking, lighting and transportation. In addition, it is extensively used by the electrical and industrial sectors.
Understandably, developed countries are the major consumers of natural gas at present. However, the rapid industrialisation in China and India has resulted in greater demand for it in these countries.
Besides industrialisation, the high price of crude oil as well as increasing environmental awareness are factors expected to shoot up the demand for natural gas worldwide. The global demand for this commodity is expected to reach 182 trillion cubic feet by 2030.
