About

Scope

Standardization of terminology, quality specifications, methods of measurement, sampling, analysis and test for natural gas and natural gas substitutes (gaseous fuel), in all its facets from production to delivery to all possible end users across national boundaries.

Recognition of work related to natural gas in other technical committees and in liaison with these technical committees.
