Chairman's Greeting

Welcome to the Natural Gas Supply Association’s (NGSA) website.

Today, natural gas plays a vital role in the nation’s energy supply, comprising nearly one quarter of total U.S. energy consumption and playing an important role in supporting renewable energy sources. More than 60 million Americans use this clean, affordable, and reliable fuel to heat and cool their homes, and to cook their food. It is used as a fuel source in various commercial and industrial sectors. Recently, America has also begun to export supercooled liquefied natural gas, or LNG, to markets abroad helping countries reduce their carbon emissions and air pollution.

Established in 1965 and headquartered in our nation’s capital, NGSA represents major integrated and large independent domestic producers of natural gas.

Our mission is to ensure competitive natural gas and power markets that is supported by appropriate regulations. Through various legislative and regulatory policy initiatives, NGSA seeks to maintain competitive markets, improve downstream efficiencies and foster increased supply to U.S. markets.

NGSA also supports a balanced energy future, one which ensures a level playing field for all market participants and eliminates inappropriate regulatory barriers to supply.  NGSA is dedicated to achieving a cleaner future through strong partnerships with renewables and supporting innovative technologies and market solutions that reduce emissions.

The association’s long-standing relationship with the executive branch, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Capitol Hill, and with other industry trade groups enables NGSA to effectively represent its membership on regulatory and legislative issues about natural gas. Moreover, because of our strong presence in Washington, D.C., we are often looked to by legislators, regulators and members of the news media as industry leaders.

We hope that visiting this site will heighten your awareness of the importance of natural gas in our nation’s energy mix. If you have any further comments, questions or concerns, our staff in Washington is available to answer your questions.

Sincerely,
Orlando Alvarez
