The International Gas Union (IGU) continues to expand its membership, particularly in the Associate Members (companies) category, the organization told Trend.
“There is also still room for new Charter Members (Countries) even though the IGU's Charter membership already includes 89 countries making up more than 95 percent of the global gas production and consumption,” said IGU.
The International Gas Union (IGU) was founded in 1931. It is a worldwide non-profit organisation registered in Vevey, Switzerland with the Secretariat currently located in Barcelona, Spain.
The mission of IGU is to advocate gas as an integral part of a sustainable global energy system, and to promote the political, technical and economic progress of the gas industry. The more than 160 members of IGU are associations and corporations of the gas industry representing over 95 percent of the global gas market. The working organisation of IGU covers the complete value of gas chain from exploration and production, transmission via pipelines and liquefied natural gas (LNG) as well as distribution and combustion of gas at the point of use.
