Affiliate organisations are organizations that do not meet membership criteria but that can assist IGU with its mission, increase and rationalise cooperation within the energy sector, and generally promote the development of the natural gas industry. Both parties benefit and work together to avoid overlapping research and development activities.

In 2013 I had the privilege to join IGU as the first secondee from the Middle East for two years. I felt privileged to be the first from this region and was proud to represent our new major market players. I thank Oman LNG for seeing the benefits of such a program and IGU for providing the opportunity. The experience was educational and enjoyable and felt like a ‘golden ticket’ – providing massive networking opportunities and industry knowledge, both of which have been essential in enhancing my career since.
