List of natural gas fields

Countries where natural gas fields are located

This list of natural gas fields includes major fields of the past and present.

N.B. Some of the items listed are basins or projects that comprise many fields (e.g. Sakhalin has three fields: Chayvo, Odoptu, and Arkutun-Dagi).
