UEG Storage and Reinjection of Gas

Project scope

Gas, like many commodities, can be placed in storage facilities for indefinite periods of time and distributed when required. Gas storage plays a crucial role in balancing supply and demand in most gas consuming countries. Gas is injected into storage during periods of low demand and withdrawn from storage during periods of peak demand. Gas storage has an economic importance mainly during winter periods or at times of high demand when gas price increases. Advancements in gas storage technology, specifically around the reinjection of gas for storage, potentially pose increased safety risks.

The Gas IRC has proposed to review and develop the skills needs of gas technicians undertaking storage and reinjection of gas work. This project will review the relevant components of the UEG Gas Industry Training Package to ensure the required industry skills are ‘fit for purpose’ and meet industry regulatory requirements.
