How does natural gas appraisal and development fit with the recent IPCC Climate Change Report?

The IPCC Climate Change Report finalised in October 2018 (called SR15) is seen as a landmark document which has raised the profile of our future energy supply among other issues. The report tacitly recognises that there will be a constant need for natural gas up to 2050.  Natural gas is the low carbon transition fuel needed to reduce global dependency on high carbon fossil fuels over the next thirty years.
