Nigerian Gas Association
The Nigerian Gas Association (NGA), a chartered member of the International Gas Union, is the apex non-partisan organization representing the varied and numerous stakeholders within the Nigerian Natural Gas Industry Value Chain. We were established in 1999 to champion the development of Natural Gas in Nigeria for the benefit of the nation and its stakeholders.
Today, NGA’s membership includes international and indigenous oil & gas companies, and a variety of other corporate and individual members whose operations span activities along the vast natural gas value chain – from upstream exploration and production, midstream processing and transportation, to downstream distribution and the various end user entities. Included in this list are critical subsectors of the economy such as: Power Generation, Gas Based Industries like fertilizer and petrochemicals, other Industrial and Commercial Consumers, factories and related commercial outlets which use gas as fuel or feedstock.
The five core objectives of the NGA are: Advocacy to Shape Policy and Legislation; Investment Promotion; Promotion of Standards and Best Practices; Becoming the Industry Resource Centre of Choice; and Capacity Building.
As the voice of the entire Natural Gas Industry Value Chain in Nigeria, the Association has, over the past 21 years, continued to work assiduously to improve the quality of life of Nigerians by advocating for gas as a key contributor to and primary enabler of Nigeria’s industrialisation, power sufficiency, economic growth and national development. Key to the success of our advocacy is engagement with all stakeholders in the Nigerian Natural Gas Industry Value Chain to encourage collaboration and information exchange in order to shape the industry towards the achievement of critical national goals and objectives on the Wings of Gas.
With the declaration of years 2021 - 2030 as the “Decade of Gas” by the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria through the Honourable Minister of State for Petroleum Resources; and recent passage and enactment of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA); and considering the backdrop of global changes occasioned by the Pandemic and the Energy Transition; the Nigerian Natural Gas Industry Value Chain must seize this opportunity to galvanise political will and commitment from all local and international stakeholders to realise measurable progress in the following key areas during this “Decade of Gas”:
- Delivering reliable power supply
- Ensuring sufficient and affordable cooking gas
- Accelerating gas infrastructure development
- Providing and sustaining the right and favourable legal and regulatory frameworks
- Supporting the export market
- Catalysing rapid gas based industrialisation
- Deepening Local Content & Capacity Development
