The Natural Gas Council is comprised of five associations composed of thousands of companies that represent the industry from start to finish –from the wellhead to the burner tip. The Council addresses industry issues and concerns, and issues joint statements, reports, letters and filings representing the unified views of the industry. Leadership rotates each year – in 2023 the Council is led by the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America. 

The American Gas AssociationAGA, founded in 1918, represents more than 200 local energy companies that deliver clean natural gas throughout the United States. There are more than 76 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 95 percent — more than 72 million customers — receive their gas from AGA members. Today, natural gas meets more than thirty percent of the United States’ energy needs.  
The American Petroleum Institute: API represents all segments of America’s natural gas and oil industry, which supports more than 11 million U.S. jobs and is backed by a growing grassroots movement of millions of Americans. Our approximately 600 members produce, process and distribute the majority of the nation’s energy, and participate in API Energy Excellence®, which is accelerating environmental and safety progress by fostering new technologies and transparent reporting. API was formed in 1919 as a standards-setting organization and has developed more than 800 standards to enhance operational and environmental safety, efficiency and sustainability.
The Independent Petroleum Association of America: IPAA is a national upstream trade association representing thousands of independent oil and natural gas producers and service companies across the United States. Independent producers develop 91 percent of the nation’s oil and natural gas wells. These companies account for 83 percent of America’s oil production, 90 percent of its natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL) production, and support over 4.5 million American jobs.
The Interstate Natural Gas Association of America: INGAA is the North American association representing the interstate and interprovincial natural gas pipeline industry. INGAA’s members operate approximately 200,000 miles of pipelines and serve as an indispensable link between natural gas producers and consumers.
The Natural Gas Supply Association: NGSA represents major integrated and independent companies that supply U.S. natural gas. NGSA focuses on producer-marketer issues related to the downstream natural gas industry and advocates for well-functioning markets that foster a growing, competitive market for natural gas.  NGSA is dedicated to achieving a cleaner future through strong partnerships with renewables, innovative technologies and market solutions that reduce emissions, such as a price on carbon.
