Who we are

The Florida Natural Gas Association (FNGA) was established on December 9, 1961 by a reorganization of the Florida-Georgia Gas Association in order to promote, protect and encourage the growth of the natural gas industry in the State of Florida. The association has been working to protect the interests of the natural gas industry, its members and consumers. The FNGA is your voice, offering services and benefits you could never enjoy as an individual. The FNGA means you speak with a strong, united voice of Florida’s entire natural gas industry.

The Mission of the FNGA is: as the voice of the natural gas industry in Florida, supports its members in promoting the safety & value of natural gas through advocacy, education and communication.

The FNGA promotes the use of natural gas to:

  • Reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil.
  • Reduce environmental impact.
  • Conserve our planet’s resources.
  • Keep more jobs in America.
  • Increase the end use of natural gas, Florida’s smarter, tougher energy source.

The Vision of the FNGA is to be the pre-eminent natural gas organization in Florida.

The Priority Issue Areas of the FNGA Are:

  1. Advocacy: Strengthen FNGA Advocacy
  2. Communication: Enhance FNGA Communications
  3. Education: Coordinate Opportunities for Quality Education
