This handy booklet summarizes the value of natural gas for meeting the most pressing global energy, climate, and economic challenges. The 2019 edition contains information on natural gas and its role in helping economies grow, lifting people out of poverty, and cleaning up the environment, while supporting reliable access to modern energy. This edition also contains a special section on methane emissions, and the opportunities that their further reductions present for the industry.
The World Gas Conference, conducted by the International Gas Union (IGU) since 1931, is the world’s largest and most important global gas industry event where the world’s foremost policy-makers, business leaders and technical experts gather every three years to shape the global energy agenda.

Event owners, the International Gas Union, GTI and the International Institute of Refrigeration together with Gazprom as a Host are delighted to invite you to the 20th Anniversary edition of the International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas
A charter member is the most representative gas entity in a country, most commonly the national gas association or a major oil and gas company. However, some Charter members are also represented by ministries and national regulators.
Premium Associate membership is available through an application process to Associate members. Premium Associate member status grants most of the same rights as a Charter member is entitled to. The number of members within this selected category, which is maintained for a three-year period, is limited to 15.
Associate members include companies that own physical and/or commercial gas-related assets or have an interest in advancing the gglobal gas industry, ssuch as consulting, contracting, supply, technology development or advisory services.
Affiliated organisations are organisations that do not meet membership criteria but can assist IGU with its mission, increase and rationalise cooperation within the energy sector, and generally promote the development of the natural gas industry. Both parties benefit and work together to collaborate on similar work activities.
