What is natural gas?
Natural gas is a naturally occurring resource found throughout Canada. The main producing regions are Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan, with smaller production hubs in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
Natural gas is brought to the surface, processed, and distributed via 570,000 kilometres of underground infrastructure to fuel the lives of Canadians, from keeping us warm to helping us cook dinner for our families.
In addition to underground natural gas supplies, there are growing volumes of lower emission renewable gases in Canada, including hydrogen and renewable natural gas, which are contributing to a cleaner future for Canadians.
