Our mission, vision, objectives
Eurogas was founded in 1990 as a non-profit organisation to represent the interests of the gas industry in one strong voice towards European and global stakeholders.
Its 42 members currently comprise companies, national associations and international organisations all engaged in the wholesale, retail and distribution of gas in Europe.
The association aims to strengthen the role of gas in the energy mix by establishing an ongoing dialogue with European industry players, global producers of gas and relevant institutions such as the European Commission.
Eurogas is part of the EU Transparency Register: 17909506129-41
