Nigerian Gas Association

About Us

The Nigerian Gas Association (NGA) is the apex organisation representing the varied and numerous stakeholders in the gas sector within the Nigerian oil and gas industry.

The NGA is the largest gas-focused volunteer/individual-member organization; the umbrella association and voice of the gas industry in Nigeria.

We are a chartered member of the International Gas Union (IGU).

We are a non-profit, non-governmental, & non-political association that was formed in 1999 to promote the advancement of Nigerian Natural Gas as the preferred energy source while serving as the premier platform for championing the development of gas in Nigeria for the benefit of the nation and the various stakeholders in the Nigerian Gas Value Chain.

Our earliest members include Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC), Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Company (NLNG), Chevron Nigeria Limited, the Nigerian Gas Company (NGC), Elf Petroleum, Mobil Producing Nigeria, Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), and Conoco Energy Nigeria Limited.

Today, our association membership consists of a variety of international and indigenous companies as corporate members and individual members across the various sub-sectors and disciplines that make up the vast gas value chain; starting from gas exploration & production companies (Upstream), to gas processing and transportation companies (Mid-stream), and including the various end consumers; ranging from power generation companies (Gencos), Gas-Based Industries (Fertilizer, Methanol, Petrochemical, etc), and Industrial and Commercial Consumers (Mini/Micro LNG, CNG/LPG, etc.).

NGA is the largest gas-focused volunteer/individual-member organization and the umbrella association and the voice of the gas industry in Nigeria.


NGA will be the most influential and independent non-profit organization, in effectively advancing the role of Nigerian Natural Gas as the preferred energy source, while serving as the platform for championing the development of the gas industry in Nigeria.


NGA will actively champion the competitiveness and utilisation of Natural Gas by promoting sound policy development, capacity development and best practices towards optimising the economics of the entire gas value chain, while emphasising environmental sustainability and safety.
