When the volume decreases and the number of moles of gas on both sides of the reaction are equal, the reaction does not shift and it is unaffected. This is because the number of moles of reactants and products are equal, so the reaction does not favor either the forward or reverse reaction. If the volume decreases and there are then more moles of gas on the left or right, the reaction will shift right or left, respectively.
