Members and Supporters

Group in a meeting

The Natural Gas Initiative relies on a group of members and supporters, listed below, to provide discretionary funding for the activities of the initiative and, more importantly, to participate in ongoing consultation, discussion, and collaborative research. The interactions between Stanford researchers and expert leaders from industry, foundations, governments, and inter-governmental organizations ensure that our work has real-world applicability and impact.

Because the comprehensive work of the Natural Gas Initiative spans many industries and academic disciplines we actively seek to maintain a diverse membership in our consortium. We encourage participation from members around the world and in all industry sectors.

All NGI Memberships are subject to Stanford University Policies for Industry Affiliates Programs. All research results funded by our affiliates fees are shared with all program members and the public.

We welcome participation in our consortium from any organization with an interest in natural gas and natural gas-related industries. If you or your organization are interested in learning more about membership, please view our membership page or contact NGI Managing Director, Naomi Boness.
