The world’s natural gas consumption is forecast to fall in 2016, according to new estimates from the World Bank and other agencies.
The estimates are based on a number of factors including natural gas prices and demand growth, which is expected to slow in 2016.
The World Bank predicts that the world’s global demand will decline from the year of 2019.
The report notes that a number the world consumes is largely driven by demand for natural gas in the developing world.
The world will use less natural gas than it did in 2015 and 2016.
In 2017, the world will consume around 3.8 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of natural gas, the report notes.
However, that is only around 0.7 percent of global demand.
The World Bank forecasts that by 2020, the number of countries consuming natural gas will fall from 683 million to 523 million, while China’s share will grow from 10 percent to 22 percent.
Overall, the global demand for gas is expected increase by 2.1 trillion tcf from 2019 to 2020.
This is a significant decrease from the 1.6 trillion tcb in 2015, when China’s coal use was also at a peak, the Wall Street Journal reported.
