    In some regions, particularly Europe with its complex network of pipeline trade, it is not always possible to exclude natural gas in transit through a country due to a lack of clear distinction between gas that is imported for subsequent export and gas that is imported for domestic use. If a country or economy cannot determine the quantity in transit then it should report trade including the gas in transit, noting this in the metadata.
