European Union natural gas main imports
This map represents the EU-28’s main natural gas imports flows based on their origin country in 2018. Blue arrows represent LNG flows, the red ones represent pipeline flows.
N.B. 73% of gas imports from Algeria and 96% of gas imports from Norway are through pipelines.
The European Union has adopted a diversification strategy for its natural gas supplies. This strategy is key to reduce its dependency toward exporting countries.
However, Russia and Norway remain Europe’s main suppliers of natural gas, accounting for 35% and 22% of all its imports.
