Technical standards for gas – Sector Integration
18 June 2021
MARCOGAZ actively collaborates with standardisation bodies such as CEN, and our members have been deeply involved in the standardisation work for decades.
Essentially, standards reflect the state of the art in terms of safe and sustainable operational gas supply activities. The standardisation process fosters the continuous improvement of assets’ integrity and interoperability while ensuring the continuity of supply to the customers in the best conditions. The introduction of new gases is a major step in the gas value chain and technical standards are crucial to support the gas industry’s contribution to decarbonisation.
Based on its technical work and experience, MARCOGAZ developed a summary of technical standards applicable to the gas industry’s activities to guide representatives and players in the sector. Given the large number of existing standards, MARCOGAZ selected the most relevant for the gas mid and downstream sector. This list is subject to periodic updates, based on the evolving nature of the standardisation processes and industry needs.
