GasNaturally is a partnership of six associations that together represent the whole European gas value chain – from exploration and production to transmission, from distribution to transportation.
EUROGAS is the association representing the European gas wholesale, retail and distribution sectors. Founded in 1990, its members are 43 companies and associations from 24 countries. Eurogas represents the sector towards the EU institutions and, as such, participates in the Madrid Gas Regulatory Forum, the Gas Coordination Group, the Citizens Energy Forum and other stakeholder groups.
GERG, the European Gas Research Group, is a research and development organisation with a unique role in Europe, in that it provides both support and stimulus for the technological innovation necessary to ensure that the European gas industry can rise to meet the technological challenges of the new century.
GIE is the European association representing the interests of natural gas infrastructure operators active in natural gas transmission, storage and LNG regasification.
Its internal structure has three columns corresponding to the types of infrastructure activities represented, i.e. GTE (Gas Transmission Europe), GSE (Gas Storage Europe) and GLE (Gas LNG Europe). GIE currently represents 70 member companies from 25 countries.
