Colorado School of Mines Potential Gas Agency

The Potential Gas Committee (PGC) is supported by the CSM Potential Gas Agency. The Committee, now in its 46th year, consists of 145 volunteer members from the natural gas industry, government, and academic institutions, who biennially assess the size and location of the nation’s natural gas resource base. PGC provides statistically correct estimates of the U.S. natural gas resource base, approves the assessment criteria and methods, trains members in proper assessment procedures, insures maintenance of standards and objectivity, and publishes the gas resource assessments. The PGC studies show that Colorado is endowed with a significant portion of the remaining natural gas in the U.S.
