The EU is the world’s top gas importing region, deriving more than 80% of its annual consumption from external sources. The Europe Gas Tracker provides a comprehensive dataset of fossil gas infrastructure across the European Union, with some components covered in non-EU countries as well. The Tracker covers gas pipelines, LNG terminals, gas-fired power plants, and gas extraction sites. The map and underlying data are updated every year in February, and each project has a dedicated wiki page on GEM.wiki that provides extensive detail on the project, such as the project’s status, capacity, cost and ownership.
The interactive map format allows users to geographically visualize various configurations of pipeline routes and infrastructure locations. The data for this tracker is drawn from the global datasets developed by the Global Gas Plant Tracker, Global Oil and Gas Extraction Tracker, and Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker.
