Natural gas production environmental hazards

Incidence:
In the former Soviet Union, as much as 4 to 9 percent of natural gas produced may be lost due to natural gas pipeline ruptures (50-70 each year) and leakage during both natural gas production stages and distribution networks. There is no evidence of a slowdown in Soviet gas production.
