The climate emergency and current energy crisis have created a new sense of urgency around the energy transition and the need to move to secure net-zero energy supply. Hydrogen will be integral to this transition, and a consequence of this is that the existing pipeline infrastructure will be required to transport hydrogen from places of production to places of demand. The transition to hydrogen will mean new challenges to pipeline operators, both operationally and in terms of maintaining the safety and integrity of their networks. This meet-up will demonstrate the challenges involved, and outline a pragmatic, safe, engineering-led solution to address them through a phased integrity-led approach.
