Three new members join Eurogas in 2016

Brussels, 20 December 2016: This year Eurogas was joined by three new members, namely the Gas Value Chain Company, Cheniere Marketing International and Zukunft Erdgas.

All three organisations joined Eurogas in the second half of this year, taking up a new type of membership that was created this summer and aimed at associations, companies and federations that do not fulfil the conditions for regular membership but are in other ways direct participants of the gas value chain and support the achievement of Eurogas’ objectives. All three are very different in nature but equally dedicated to gas in Europe:

The Gas Value Chain Company, represented by its Managing Director Wolfgang Peters, former CEO of RWE Supply & Trading CZ and former Board member of Eurogas, provides project management services, including negotiations and commercial expert support as well as commercial expertise in international arbitrations and mediations.

Cheniere Marketing International, represented by Ramzi Mroueh, Managing Director, Origination and Marketing, is developing a platform for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) sales to international markets, including Europe. Two LNG terminals are developed along the Gulf of Mexico, Sabine Pass Liquefaction in Cameron Parish, Louisiana and Corpus Christi Liquefaction in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Zukunft Erdgas, represented by its Chairman Timm Kehler, is an initiative of the German gas sector to promote natural gas as a brand and product and to be the interlocutor for consumers, politicians and market partners. Zukunft Erdgas advocates making use of the potential of natural gas and provides information on the opportunities that gas offers to the energy transition and consumers, today and in the future.

Secretary General, Beate Raabe said: “Over the years we have received requests to join from a number of organisations that do not fit the usual criteria of our membership and I am happy that we are now able to accommodate such interest. We welcome this new and diverse group of members that each bring their own expertise and perspectives to the work of the association.”

Liaising members will benefit from:

  • Regular information on issues covered by Eurogas.
  • Reception of Eurogas positions papers, brochures, press releases.
  • Free admission to Eurogas events, i.e. annual conference, strategy discussions of General Assembly, workshops, and so on.
