It is a tailored service that brings together the best articles on the internet and delivers them to your inbox every morning. Natural gas is a fossil fuel that has a variety of uses. This includes as a source of energy, but it is also used in the manufacture of fertilizer and in the chemical industry, such as in the manufacture of plastics. Issues regarding its production, distribution, storage and availability regularly affect prices, as traders try to predict consumer and industrial demand. Natural gas is most abundant in Iran and Russia, but Qatar and Turkmenistan also have significant reserves. The United States is one of the world's largest producers too. But natural gas is a non-renewable fossil fuel so debates about its long-term viability, alternatives, and security of supply are never far from the headlines.
