List of countries by natural gas imports

Trends in the five nations with the largest annual net imports of natural gas

This is a list of countries by natural gas imports mostly based on The World Factbook [1] and EIA [2]. For informational purposes several non-sovereign entities are also included in this list.

Many countries are both importers and exporters of natural gas. For instance, although Canada appears on the list below as the world's fourteenth-largest gas importer, It exports more natural gas than it imports, and so is a net exporter of natural gas. See: List of countries by natural gas exports.
