At gas end of each module cycle, gas will be deposited into the cargo hold or ore bay. The visual effect of the harvesters is much more subdued than mining cloud, requiring you to zoom the camera venture close to the ship to see. Make sure you have gas clouds displayed in your overview, as they are not selectable by default.
To do this, right click the overview, select open overview settings, mining the filter tab, open the celestials folder, and check the Harvestable Clouds box see screenshot right. Gas can be stored in the ore holds of specialized mining and hauling ships even though it is not technically an ore. The range of the harvester module is much shorter than a mining laser at only 1.
What is Gas Harvesting?
Skills Gas harvesting has very few skills related to it. This skill is trainable by alpha clones to level II. You can only use one gas cloud harvester per trained skill level. Note that this is very different from normal mining, where the number of mining lasers is not determined by skills. Gas Cloud Harvesting should be trained either to 2 to equip two harvesters on a Venture or Prospect or 5 to use T2 harvesters.

Additionally, Ventures and Prospects decrease their gas harvesting cycle duration with the Mining Frigate skill. This is the only other skill that increases gas harvesting yield.
General fitting and tanking skills are also recommended in order to safely fly a well fitted harvesting ship.
