MARCOGAZ is the reference association of the gas industry for technical assessment in the midstream and downstream gas systems. We deliver factual insights, used as the basis for establishing trusted regulations, standardisation and legislation in Europe.
We are the trustful and reliable partner for gas technical assignments. We work together with stakeholders and authorities to jointly contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions for the energy sector and ensuring reliable, affordable and sustainable energy.
With the support of its working groups of technical experts, MARCOGAZ is actively involved in concrete initiatives and programs to ensure the sustainable, safe and efficient development of natural gas and new gases including hydrogen and biomethane and the sector integration in Europe.
Deliverables of MARCOGAZ are based on science and technical expertise from planning and operation gas experts throughout the gas value chain. MARCOGAZ serves as a factual pillar to the European gas industry, allowing for better standardisation and certification at European level. We provide the technical input for the European bodies that seek to align energy policy and legislation accordingly.
As an active EU stakeholder, MARCOGAZ is involved in a wide range of consultations and conferences. As a technical association, we are engaged in monitoring EU energy policy and promoting the best approaches concerning technical regulation, standardisation and certification, while respecting the integrity and safety of gas systems and the rational use of energy.
