INGAA Foundation Studies


The Foundation's primary activity is to sponsor research aimed at promoting natural gas use and safe, efficient pipeline construction and operation. Since 1990, the Foundation has completed over 110 studies, in addition to many projects and workshops which benefit the industry. These projects focus on key industry issues such as environmental impacts of energy use, improved pipeline construction practices, pipeline safety procedures, new technologies and market opportunities for natural gas.

The Foundation also sponsors briefings and conferences on topics of special interest to its members. These conferences promote information exchange and foster communication among pipelines, contractors, service providers, and representatives from government agencies and academic institutions.

The Foundation provides the ideal environment for companies involved in the energy business to gain insights on the fast-changing natural gas industry.
