Gas Reserves in Taiwan

See also: List of countries by Gas Reserves

Taiwan holds only 0.22 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of proven gas reserves as of 2017, ranking 83rd in the world and accounting for about 0.003% of the world's total natural gas reserves of 6,923 Tcf.

Total gas reserves in Taiwan are less than even a single year of gas consumption (793,139 MMcf as of 2017), making Taiwan highly dependent on natural gas imports in order to substain its consumption levels.
