Gas mines are late-stage production buildings in Anno 1800's Arctic region.
Their function is roughly similar to that of Oil Refineries found in Old World and New World. Gas Mines can build Gas Pumps upon Gas Deposits within their radius, to extract Gas. This gas can then be shipped to Gas Power Plants in Old World and Cape Trelawney to produce electricity for the residences and factories there.
An important difference in generating Electricity by Gas or Oil, is that Gas does not require the extensive development of a Railway Network. Instead, the difficulty lies elsewhere. See the page on Electricity for a description of its challenges.
Some items when equipped in Arctic Lodges can have an impact on gas mines. Below you can find lists of such items.
