The annual AGA Operations Conference is the natural gas industry's premier gathering of natural gas utility and transmission company operations management from across North America and the world for the sharing of technical knowledge, ideas and practices to promote the safe, reliable, and cost-effective delivery of natural gas to the end-user. The Operations Conference is AGA's largest forum with regularly more than 900 operations management in attendance, including over 100 speakers, and 120 technical presentations that run the gamut of topics, such as gas measurement, operations advocacy, safety, environment, storage, engineering, construction and maintenance, gas control, supplemental gas, corrosion control and plastic materials.
AGA Operations Section At a GlanceThe American Gas Association, founded in 1918, represents more than 200 local energy companies that deliver clean natural gas throughout the United States. There are more than 74 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 95 percent — more than 71 million customers — receive their gas from AGA members. AGA is an advocate for natural gas utility companies and their customers and provides a broad range of programs and services for member natural gas pipelines, marketers, international natural gas companies and industry associates. Today, natural gas meets more than one-fourth of the United States’ energy needs.
The AGA Operations Section focuses on the engineering and technological aspects of transporting, storing, distributing and measuring natural gas. It aids member companies in operating safely, effectively, environmentally and economically by reducing operating costs while continuing to serve the best interests of the public. The Operations Conference and Biennial Exhibition is sponsored by the AGA Operations Section with the support of the AGA Operations Equipment & Services Associates Section.
