There is still an awful lot of gas down there. I was once told that Iranians are aware of mega gas fields that are comparable to South Pars but they don’t touch them yet as Pars takes precedence. Sub-Saharan Africa is another province where most gas comes out accidentally. A by-product of oil production. Just imagine someone going for gas there. But the big monster slumbering down there is gas hydrates As soon as those are being made commercial, they will dwarf all conventional and other unconventional gas by an order of magnitude.
Dubai and Abu Dhabi made what could be the world’s largest natural gas discovery since 2005 as the two biggest sheikhdoms in the United Arab Emirates aim to push the country to energy self-sufficiency.
