Every day you use gas-fired power, as well as products that are made using natural gas and petroleum by-products.

Your TV, phone, computer and car contain plastics that were produced using natural gas as a fuel and as a raw material.

The bricks in your house were probably made in gas-fired kilns.

Gas is also needed in food preparation and processing, fermentation and brewing.

Wind turbines and solar panels also include components that can only be made by using natural gas.

Natural gas underpins our standard of living and our way of life.
