Natural gas has become one of the most coveted sources of energy in the world. Natural gas is considered to be an efficient source of energy that is a vital part to the world’s energy mix due to its release of relatively low levels of greenhouse gas compared to other carbon fuels.
Atlantic Canada has been a significant producer of natural gas, principally from production off the coast of Nova Scotia from the Sable and Deep Panuke offshore fields. However, both of these offshore gas producing fields were decommissioned. No on-shore exploration is taking place in Atlantic Canada. Natural gas is in seasonal production at the McCully natural gas field near Sussex, NB.
