In countries such as the US, Canada, China, and Argentina, the growth in unconventional oil and gas exploration and production activities as an alternative to conventional production has led to the identification of major unconventional oil and gas reserves in and according to the EIA the working capacity of underground gas storage of the lower 48 states in the US as of November 2017, was found to be 4.725 bcm.

Global underground gas storage market: Global initiatives to reduce GHG emissions
The increasing use of clean energy source in energy production faces competition from fossil fuels. The adoption of renewable energy is supported by global clean energy initiatives as well as government subsidies and incentives that motivate people and companies to adopt this form of energy. Globally, the major reason for harnessing renewable energy gaining importance is owing to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused because of the combustion of conventional fuels.
"One of the major sources of air pollution across the globe is the transportation sector. As per the IEA, in 2017, the transportation sector was responsible for 24% of direct carbon emissions. The combustion of fossil fuels leads to carbon dioxide emissions, which are a major contributor to GHG emissions, leading to climate change and the decline in air quality. GHG emissions from the transportation sector are increasing, and this increase will lead to a negative impact on the environment, Hence, there are increasing initiatives to reduce GHG emissions globally," says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on oil and gas.
