Sweden is at the heart and soul of the natural gas industry. Domestic gas consumption in Sweden totaled some 1.3 billion cubic meters (bcm) in 2011, compared to over 1.5 bcm in 2010, the latest year for which data on consumption by sector is available.  In that year, 53% of total gas use was consumed in the transformation sector and 33% in the industry sector, which includes non‐energy use. The residential and commercial sectors each accounted for another 6%, while the remainder of gas use was in the transport sector (2%).
