The Middle East and Asia Pacific are the main net exporting regions for coal and gas. The territories in these regions export up to 60% of all gas and coal exports in the world (US$ net). Of the 53 net exporting territories, 15 are in Asia Pacific, and 13 are in the Middle East.
In some regions there is only one net exporting territory: in Southern Asia this is Bhutan; in Eastern Europe this is Poland; and in North America this is Canada. Japan has no net gas and coal exports and hence relies on imports.
Gas and coal exports are 2% of all world exports.
