Natural gas production, largely located in northeast British Columbia and southern Yukon and Northwest Territories, dominates this sector.  However, it takes energy to make energy.  Natural gas (79.53%), electricity (1.21%) and NGLs (3.36%) are the major sources of energy used by petroleum producers in the region.

In 2010, oil and gas production (including transmission facilities)
consumed 120,926,500 GJ and
emitted 13,891,420 GHG tonnes.

The fuels produced by this sector ultimately make their way to other industrial, commercial, institutional and residential end users.
