US to probe hydrogen transport in pipelines

October 21, 2021

President Joe Biden’s administration is starting to lay the groundwork to safely scale up the volumes of hydrogen that could be transported through pipelines and stored, possibly in blends with natural gas.

The US Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) plans to expand its research to look at the effects of hydrogen on pipelines and underground storage, according to a notice issued today. The research, set for discussion at a public forum on 1 December, comes as the administration looks toward hydrogen as a fuel that could be useful in hard-to-decarbonize industries such as heavy transportation.

“Hydrogen is one of the most interesting versatile energy sources of the future,” Deputy US energy secretary David Turk said yesterday. “It provides solutions not only for heavy duty-transport but for a variety of industrial applications.”
