History

GIIGNL was founded soon after the birth of the LNG Industry by the then small group of companies importing LNG to share information to facilitate the development of LNG imports and support the growth of the LNG industry.

Beginning with 19 member companies in 1971, GIIGNL has grown to 78 Full and Associate members from 26 different countries around the world (Asia, Europe and Americas), representing virtually every LNG import terminal as well as other aspects of the LNG trade. In line with the development of the LNG industry, the GIIGNL membership is now composed of gas and power companies, infrastructure companies and most of the major oil companies active in the LNG business.
