UEG Gas Processing

Project Updates

13 May 2020

On Thursday 7 May 2020, AIS facilitated a meeting to discuss suitable strategy to address the skill needs of gas technicians operating ancillary gas processing equipment within gas transmission installations. Members from the Gas IRC met with representatives from Process Manufacturing, Recreational Vehicle and Laboratory IRCs, IBSA and training organisations involved in the development and use of PMA Chemical, Hydrocarbons and Refining and MSL Laboratory Operations Training Packages. The group identified Units of Competency within the PMA and MSL Training Packages that may potentially be used to address the skills needs outlined in this project. AIS, under the direction of the Gas IRC, will review and finalise the importation of these Units of Competency into the Gas Training Package. More detailed information will be made available as the finalisation progresses.

Recent technology advancements in gas processing including the extraction of nitrogen and mercury, use of separation equipment, and cryogenics has led to a change in required skill needs of gas technicians undertaking gas processing work.

The Gas Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed to develop one new Unit of Competency to support the skill needs of technicians operating ancillary gas processing equipment within gas transmission installations.

The expected submission of the Case for Endorsement will be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) by 31 July 2020.


The Gas IRC will have oversight of this project which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed for this project.

Regular project updates will be posted on this page throughout the life of the project.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact Industry Manager Klausch Schmidt.
