The primary focus of this project was to understand what was required at the NIC Phase 1a and 1b test sites. It also ensured the designs had a level of independent assurance, providing confidence in effective test execution.

The designs were independently design-assured using the principles of the gas industry’s G17 process, and evolved alongside the master testing plan, to define how tests are carried out, what is being measured and outputs required. This ensured tests are always aligned to meet the NIC strategic objective.
