Offshore gas dominates Nova Scotia's oil and gas industry. However, it takes energy to make energy
. Natural gas was by far the major source of energy for this sector (79.19%) in 2010. Natural gas liquids (3.67%), oil (17.12%) and electricity (0.02%) made up the balance.
In 2010, oil and gas production (including transmission facilities)
consumed 10,832,000 GJ and
emitted 744,121 GHG tonnes.
The fuels produced by this sector ultimately make their way to other industrial, commercial / institutional and residential end users.
