COVID-19 Library:

resources for the Natural gas Industry

Produced by SGA | Last Update 06/2/2020

Every day brings new headlines about Corona virus (COVID-19). In this rapidly developing situation, the Southern Gas Association has created a resource library for our members and the greater natural gas industry. This is a comprehensive, regularly updated list of industry resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. These are helpful resources we have found as our industry continues rising to the challenge.

During this crisis, SGA is drawing on our long-standing tradition of resource sharing. One of SGA's most robust features is creating a community that facilitates a vibrant exchange of ideas.  The power to solve problems and capitalize on opportunities runs through lines of communication connecting people with information. While SGA is a natural gas training leader, our platform is centered around connecting people — members, industry partners, experts, and SGA staff. We link people through the power of information. 

As the situation evolves, this page will be updated to serve as the most up-to-date collection of COVID-19 resources for SGA members and all-natural gas professionals. Check back often for upcoming live webinars and recordings.
