In 2003, Germany produced 780 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of Natural Gas. The country is the third largest producer in the EU, behind the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. Production has risen slightly since 1991, but the lack of new discoveries in the country could hinder future production growth.

Over 90 percent of Germany’s natural gas production occurs in Niedersachsen. Germany also operates a single offshore natural gas field, A6-B4, located in the North Sea. Operated by Wintershall, A6-B4 came onstream in September 2000, and the project currently produces about 46.8 Bcf of natural gas per year.
