IEA: N. Gas at 25% of Global Energy by 2035

Natural gas use could overtake coal and rival oil to account for more than a quarter of global energy demand by 2035, supported by booming shale gas output and a weakened appetite for nuclear power, the International Energy Association said Monday.

In a new report, the IEA concludes that gas use may rise more than 50% to 5.1 trillion cubic meters by 2035 from 2010 under a “high gas scenario” with ample supplies and robust demand from China and other emerging markets.
