About

Scope

Standardization of terminology, quality specifications, methods of measurement, sampling, analysis and testing, including thermophysical property calculation and measurement, for:

  • natural gas
  • natural gas substitutes
  • mixtures of natural gas with gaseous fuels (such as unconventional gases and renewable gases), and
  • wet gas
in all its facets from production to delivery to all possible end users across national boundaries.

Standardization of methods of analysis of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG).

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