The world has been through dramatic changes, in almost every aspect of the society: economy, politics, environment, employment and technology. Increasing population, economic growth, and the need to improve access to modern energy services for hundreds of millions of people will put additional pressure on energy resources and the environment.

Due to its qualities and availability natural gas can play an important role in helping energy policy makers to meet the energy and environmental challenges. Sustained energy policies and stable fiscal regimes contribute to reduce uncertainties in the investment climate and enable the industry to plan, invest and meet future energy needs. Improved cooperation within the industry and with other stakeholders, including governments, best catalyzes natural gas development and global energy security. 

The IEF-IGU Ministerial Gas Forum is now established as a regular platform for Ministers and senior decision makers to discuss key developments in the gas industry.
