WASHINGTON, D.C. -- More than 20 of the nation's largest independent natural gas exploration and production companies have formed the American Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA). The group hopes to increase awareness and appreciation of America's clean and abundant supply of natural gas among consumers and policy makers.
The organization has appointed Rodney W. ("Rod") Lowman as president. Lowman is establishing the natural gas alliance's governance structure, public policy priorities, and strategic communications initiatives.
"Our mission is to increase market appreciation for American natural gas as the clean, abundant, affordable, and dependable solution to the most challenging energy and environmental issues facing the US," says David A. Trice, president and CEO of Newfield Exploration Co. and chairman of ANGA.
