Purpose and scope

The Coordination Committee (CC) is the main body behind the planning and execution of activities undertaken during the triennium and is responsible for the technical programme for the 25th World Gas Conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur in June 2012.   The CC is also responsible for coordinating the development of the 2009-2012 Triennial Work programme (TWP). 

The TWP is the core document of the Presidency and provides a blueprint of the work that will be carried out during the triennium.   The document was very well received by the IGU Executive Committee and approved in June 2009.  It was subsequently endorsed by the IGU Council in October 2009. In essence, the 2009-2012 TWP aims to promote progress, competitiveness and value of the global gas industry, through the development and exchange of knowledge and information and networking among IGU members and the global community.  Hence it support the mission of IGU to reach its vision of being "the most influential, effective and independent non-profit organization, while serving as the spokesman for the gas industry worldwide". 

The workforce behind the TWP comprises technical committees formed to address specific studies covering the entire gas chain, as well as all the major "horizontal" issues concerning the world gas industry. In addition, Special Projects identified by the Presidency will also be undertaken by task forces.  A total of 13 committees, five Programme Committees (PGCs), five Working Committees (WOCs) and three Task Forces on Special Projects (TFs) form the backbone to support the work as defined in the TWP.  


Environmental issues (climate change);

A special Work Group for Sustainable Development focused on the role of gas in mitigating climate change has also been set up during the Malaysian triennium.  This group which is chaired by the Secretary General will promote natural gas as part of sustainable development  at international forums such as the UN Climate Conference (COP).
