CCS dictionary

In the CCS world, many abbreviations and words are used, and it is not always obvious how to write or what the meaning is. Gassnova has therefore created a dictionary that we hope may be useful. Please let us know if you have any feedback and suggestions for new words and explanations that should be included in this list postmottak@gassnova.no.
