Natural Gas - Home

The Group of Experts on Gas is a subsidiary body of the Committee on Sustainable Energy that provides a forum for multi-stakeholder dialogue on ways to promote the sustainable and clean production, distribution, and consumption of natural gas in the ECE region.

An exchange of experiences among ECE member States on the role of natural gas in the global energy mix and on the relation between natural gas and the environment are the Group's principal areas of work. 

At this time the Group of Experts on Gas concentrates on:

  • Best practice guidance to reduce gas leaks in the gas value chain
  • Best policy practices on the role of natural gas in increasing the uptake of renewable energy
  • Best practice policy guidance for liquefied natural gas (LNG)
  • Removing barriers to the use of natural gas as a transportation fuel
