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 UNECE region.

An exchange of experiences among UNECE 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, in accordance with its work plan for 2014-15, the Group of Experts on Gas concentrates on:

  • Leakage and emissions of gas along the value chain. To this end, the Group is setting up a Task Force to develop a Best Practice Guidance in Reducing Gas Leaks in the Gas Value Chain.
  • Natural gas and renewable energy. The Group, in collaboration with the Group of Experts on Renewable Energy, will be working on best practices on the role of natural gas in significantly increasing the uptake of renewable energy in the UNECE Region. This work will also help achieve the objective of access to energy, one of the three goals of the Secretary-General's Sustainable Energy for All initiative.
  • Liquefied Natural Gas. The Group of Experts on Gas is setting up a Task Force to build upon its previous work and develop a Best Practice Guidance for Liquefied Natural Gas.
  • Removing Barriers to the Use of Natural Gas as a Transportation Fuel. The Group of Experts is setting up a Task Force to explore this important topic, in collaboration with the UNECE Working Party on Pollution and Energy.

The Group of Experts on Gas invites all experts interested in contributing to the work of any of the four Task Forces to contact:
