The International Gas Union said that effective November 1, Luis Bertrán Rafecas has assumed the position of secretary general, taking over from Pål Rasmussen. 

This transition comes at a pivotal time for the global gas industry, IGU said in its statement on Thursday, adding that there is increasing understanding of the unprecedented role natural gas can play in the global energy transformation.

Natural gas is a vital energy source on its own and in its unique ability to enable and support the greater deployment of renewable energies, IGU said.

With the change in leadership, the IGU’s Secretariat has also relocated from Oslo, Norway to Barcelona, Spain, with Gas Natural Fenosa and Sedigas becoming the new Secretariat host organizations.
