Natural Gas Association (MNGA) is a trade
association devoted exclusively to promoting
of the natural gas industry in Mississippi.
The MNGA sponsors public
education, public relations programs . . .
and marketing programs aimed at
enhancing the distribution of natural gas.
Power generation, LNG exports globally and
pipeline exports to Mexico and Eastern
Canada, and new industrial demand are
the three rapidly growing base loads natural
in gas demand markets. These
expanding markets effectively ensure that
U.S. gas production will deliver. Because,
again, we already know that the gas resource
and proven reserves are there.
‘The industrial sector is second after power
generation and accounts for 28% of U.S. gas
demand, compared to nearly 40% two decades
ago. Many feel U.S. industrial gas
might have peaked at 23.3 Bcf/day back in
1997, but others are not so sure. Industry
still builds the cement, asphalt, and steel
that build our cities, where a rising 82% of
all Americans live.
gas plays a vital role in the nation's
energy supply, comprising nearly one-quarter
of total U.S. energy consumption. More than
60-million Americans use this
cleaning-burning, cost-effective fuel to
heat and cool their homes and to cook their
food. It is also used as a fuel source in
various commercial and industrial sectors.
For these and other reasons, the
use of natural gas is on the increase in
Mississippi and elsewhere.
Energy independence from
foreign oil, cleaner air and a more energy
efficient life and business style are firmly
in our grasp,
thanks to the discovery and
utilization of America's vast Natural Gas
