The European Gas Forum (EGaF) – a group of eight major European gas companies – embraces the use of low carbon technologies and, in particular, natural gas as an essential complement to renewable energy sources (RES) technologies to meet the EU’s 2050 CO2 and sustainable energy needs.

The European Gas Forum’s members are Centrica, Eni, E.ON, Gazprom Export, GDF SUEZ, Qatar Petroleum, Shell and Statoil. This informal group of experienced players in the European gas industry was established in 2010 to increase – at all levels of society – understanding of the environmental, economic and energy security benefits of natural gas.
