Analysis

France no longer has any major natural gas resources within its territory. 80% of the consumed natural gas is imported by pipeline from interconnection points (Norway, Russia, the Netherlands, etc.), and 20% is imported by sea via the LNG terminals (Algeria, Nigeria, Qatar, etc.). Close to 15 underground storage sites allow for a balance to be maintained between supplies which are relatively constant throughout the year and consumption levels which vary seasonally.
