How does change in pressure affect gas-phase equilibria?

Depends on how you change the pressure, pumping inert gas will not affect gas equilibria, but change the volume will (basically it is changing the concentration).

Pressure and Volume have a inverse relationship. Thus if you pump an inert gas into a system at equilibrium you are increasing the pressure you are lessening volume which leads to the reaction favoring the side of the reaction with a lower concentration.
