Algeria's Energy Minister Chakib Khelil plans to invite all main gas exporting countries to the next meeting of the recently created Gas Exporting Countries Forum, or GECF. GECF is scheduled to meet in Algiers during next January.
Eleven gas exporting nations, controlling two-thirds of the world's gas reserves, endorsed the GECF's creation in Tehran May 19. Participants in GECF are Iran, Algeria, Nigeria, Russia, Oman, Qatar, Indonesia, Malaysia, Turkmenistan, Brunei and Norway. Khelil said he plans to invite energy officials from Canada, Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Trinidad and Tobago to the GECF's next meeting. "They will all be invited but it is up to them whether they accept, " Khelil said. He also said gas consumers are welcome to attend the proposed meeting.

Libya's Oil Minister Ahmed Abdul Karim Ahmed told that he plans to attend the Algiers meeting. He said it offers a good opportunity to exchange views with other gas exporters. During the recent Tehran meeting, GECF participants said the forum will meet annually to exchange views and information on upstream and downstream issues, gas markets, pricing instruments and exports.
