Utrecht University to study underground hydrogen storage

Utrecht University suggests that underground hydrogen storage could be the solution to bottlenecks in the current energy transition and will simulate conditions in its lab.

Subsurface, porous, geological formations, such as saline aquifers and depleted oil and gas hydrocarbon reservoirs, provide substantial opportunities for storing large amounts of hydrogen.

It is explained by Dr. Suzanne Hangx, a geologist at Utrecht University, that in the High Pressure and Temperature Laboratory (HPT-lab), the team can simulate conditions for underground storage environments very accurately.

This will give the researchers an opportunity to investigate the mechanical behaviour in response to hydrogen injection-extraction in more detail.
