The UK’s Net Zero Technology Centre has released a new report that analyses the suitability of the UK’s over 45,000km of oil and gas pipelines for transporting hydrogen.
Repurposed pipelines could be a vital aspect of the growing hydrogen economy in the UK with pipelines regarded as one of the quickest and cost-effective methods of transporting vast quantities of hydrogen from point-to-point.
With this, the Net Zero Technology Centre has conducted the report A Methodology for assessing a pipelines fitness for change of use which will be used to identify the readiness and feasibility of converting the UK’s pipelines for hydrogen.
The methodology will look at the technical integrity assessment in two parts with the first reviewing the period from design until present day to determine the current condition of the pipeline.
